Beyond the Browser: A Jump-Start to Promoting Your Library’s e-Resources

Google-searching is quick and easy, but so are databases. With one extra click, results are expansive and more precise, EVEN IF it doesn’t appear so at first. Engage your target users with innovations in promoting and demystifying databases to increase usage benefitting your client. Get your message out at the right time and place through the channels users are accustomed to. Panelists will illustrate their accomplishments and how they created and cultivate them. We invite the audience to share their experiences, ideas and questions.

Building an e-Book Collection via Demand-Driven Acquisition

Middlesex County College Library has been using DDA to build its e-book collections since 2011, and our experience may either make the case for DDA or scare you away. This program will lay out the benefits and challenges of DDA, including setting up subject profiles, selecting material, monitoring funds, managing catalog records and weighing DDA against other available e-book acquisition models. Dan Lane from BCCLS will discuss demand driven e-content acquisitions in the public library sphere.
