About the Event

Event summary

Promoting your e-resources successfully

UKSG presents the fourth in their popular series of events focusing specifically on managing e-resources in the Further Education sector.

This seminar will address the issues and practicalities of providing and managing effective high quality e-resource collections within Further Education libraries.  During the day there will be opportunities to hear best practice case studies in managing e-resources and in evaluating their use, together with advice and strategies from current practitioners in colleges, and an opportunity to learn the latest about JISC’s eBooks for FE project.

The event will also give delegates the opportunity to meet with e-resource vendors who specialise in providing e-resources to the Further Education sector, as well as being a platform for discussion, problem solving and networking. 

Many thanks to our sponsors:

Alexander Street Press, Cengage Learning EMEA, Credo Reference, Dawson Books, EBSCO and Wolters Kluwer Health – Ovid
