Managing e-resources, developing collections, evaluating user behavior, and making e-content accessible is equal parts challenge and opportunity. This free LJ webcast, developed by Electronic Resources and Libraries (ER&L), offers attendees a brief look at user’s expectations, how e-content is presented to our users, what we need from our vendor partners to make e-content accessible, and tools to better analyze our user data.

  • Why Users Won’t Jump Through Library E-Book Hoops and How to Fix It
  • Using Data Refinement Tools to Improve User Experience
  • Librarian Adoption of Web-Scale Discovery Services
  • Where Do MARC Records for eBooks Come From?

Join ER&L Program Chair, Elizabeth Winter and ER&L Conference Coordinator, Bonnie Tijerina, as they moderate an insightful discussion with a distinguished lineup of expert panelists.
