free webinar - Are Users Finding Our Online Reference Resources?

 Are Users Finding Our Online Reference Resources?
Wednesday, November 20, 2013
2pm/CST; 3pm/EST
Sponsored by the RUSA CODES Reference Publishing Advisory Committee and the RSS Education and Professional Development for Reference Committee

Libraries spend a great deal of money on quality online reference resources in the hope that they will be useful to our communities. But are they being used? How do users discover reference resources in the online environment: teaching, research guides, stand-alone vendor resources? How do we enable users to cross multiple interfaces to reach reference sources? Join our discussions with librarians and vendors on these issues.
At the last ALA Midwinter meeting, the Committee held a discussion to address these issues.  Due to high interest in that discussion, a webinar will be presented with another group of publishing professionals for the panel.
