SpringerLink has steadily grown to become the world's largest and most
trusted provider of online scientific, technical and medical literature.
Fedlink and Springer <http://www.springer.com> have partnered to update you on the latest marketing practices currently being used to Market Libraries by Librarians.
Representatives from Springer will be presenting the highlights of ACRL's Marketing Your Library Program in a condensed presentation. Springer will also be providing information on their online products and the new enhancements made to the SpringerLink site.
This session will deliver key insight in these areas:
* The New SpringerLink <http://www.springerlink.com> : Experience the recently released new site that integrates eBooks, journals and eReference Works all on the same platform. The new site also features improved search and personalization features! Learn how to substantially reduce the amount of time you spend searching. Learn to perform otherwise complicated boolean searches and tailor Springerlink to your needs.
* New Springer Products and developments: Get the inside scoop on new products your researchers will be asking about, including the new eBook Collections and Online Journal Archives.
* ACRL's Marketing Your Library Briefing: ACRL's program provides resources to help you develop a marketing campaign for your own library.
Learn about the ACRL initiative from a Springer employee. Review the
tools that other Libraries use to obtain positive results and increase
awareness of their research library. Visit www.ala.org/marketing

This introductory session will arm attendees with the tools they need to maximize their online research potential as well as provide
suggestions/examples of proven practices on how to increase visibility
at their libraries.
Full day and Two-day sessions are available from ACRL and can be sponsored by Springer and arranged for US Governmentlibrarians and FEDLINK members at a later date.
