What I ended up attending, Thursday edition:
- E-Resources in a Next Generation Catalog
- Connecting With Students in Their Digital World: LibGuides
- Discovery Services From a Publisher Perspective
- Improving E-Resource Management by Optimizing your ILS
- Intelligence, Open Data, and the Future of ERM
- User-Centered Tech Support of E-Resources and The Inexorable March to Online Only
- Alternatives for Populating ERMs
The LibGuides session was very well done. The librarians shared their subject and class guides before and after LibGuides, and the capabilities of the product are exciting. I really like the use of LibGuides at Scottsdale Community College: their library website is a LibGuides page.
Now I’m going to attempt to be in two places at once. Fortunately, User-Centered Tech Support of E-Resources and The Inexorable March to Online Only are next door to each other. Both are highly relevant to my work: we evaluated our organizational structure, and, although we’ve switched a great deal of our subscriptions to online, we could improve our criteria and approach. Fortunately, both presentations are very detailed and I can pick up a lot from the slides.
