There are a number of learning opportunities that may be of interest to federal government Librarians in the next couple of weeks.

 

The first is on Tuesday, December 2, 2014 at 2:00 PM eastern. Jeff Baer and Andrew Nagy, two senior Product Managers at ProQuest will talk about the variety of Research Solutions available from ProQuest to help you support your scientists. You can register for that Webinar at http://goo.gl/7lbwDz

 

The second is a Webinar sponsored by the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) on Tuesday, December 9, 2014 at 2:00 PM pacific (5:00 PM eastern) called “Discovery Easy, Delivery Critical:” Discovery services for libraries, whether vendor-supplied or free tools such as Google Scholar, have proliferated. Users can easily get millions of results returned from a single search with little effort, but what has been done to improve linking to content once discovered? Join us for a webinar panel discussion in partnership with ProQuest, featuring librarians discussing how linking is really the most critical aspect of the discovery process for libraries, and how it is often the most overlooked or taken for granted. In an era where discovery of content is relatively easy, libraries need to be aware that linking—the process of fulfillment and delivery of desired content—is still difficult. When links fail, users think the library has failed and go elsewhere. Register at: http://goo.gl/yeyb7v
