UKSG/JISC Collections E-Resources for Further Education: London

6 Dec 2010 10:00
A one-day seminar for those interested in the day-to-day handling of e-resources in Further Education Colleges.

Summary/why you should attendUKSG training awarded the CILIP Seal of Recognition

Whilst there are similarities between the academic demands placed on both Higher Education and Further Education libraries with regard to providing users with appropriate collections of learning materials, the constraints and challenges in applying this to e-resource provision are quite different.

This seminar will focus specifically on the Further Education sector, and will address the issues and practicalities of providing and managing effective high quality e-resources collections within Further Education libraries, providing an informative day for anyone involved in the provision of e-resources in FE libraries.  There will be opportunities to hear of best practice case studies in the fields of purchasing e-resources and also in marketing techniques and strategies.  Similarly, there will be a chance to find out about usage statistics and performance indicators and how best to use these to inform your e-resource practices.

The event will also give delegates an opportunity to meet with colleagues in the FE sector for discussion, problem solving and networking. 

NBAttendance is restricted to those working in the FE sector.  Places are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.


FE institution delegates:  £40.00 + £7.00 VAT [17.5%] (total £47.00)

The fee includes refreshments and lunch.
