CHICAGO — There’s a huge demand for full-text, credible research that’s easy to find, unbiased and not hiding behind a paywall.  In-depth information on issues like product research, health issues, hobbies, career advice and personal finance are within the reach of your library’s users. But do you know how to help them find it? In the next broadcast of American Libraries Live we’ll discuss how discovery services can work for you and your library.  Tune in to “Web-Scale Discovery, Quality Information, and User Habits in K-12 and Public Libraries” at 2 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, Dec. 11. You can view this free, streaming video broadcast from your home, library or on-the-go. Our panel of experts includes:

  • Susan R. McAlister, executive director, Minuteman Library Network (Mass.)
  • Brenda Brock , librarian, Episcopal High School (La.)
  • Laura T. Sponhour, outreach specialist, INFOhio

We are proud to have EBSCO Discovery Service as a sponsor for this broadcast. Find out more about how EBSCO Discovery Service is the marketing solution that matches your library resources with this unmet demand.
