Promoting your e-resources successfully
UKSG presents the third 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. There will be opportunities to hear best practice case studies in managing e-resources with a particular focus on marketing techniques and strategies from current practitioners in colleges, as well as learning 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.
