Creating a Research Portal
Thursday, January 21, 2010 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (Central Time)

Electronic resources are said to be the future of the library where the library exists on user’s desktops instead of down the hall.  While this sounds simple, providing clear access to the many resources a library licenses for its users can be complex. This webinar will help librarians focus on how to present electronic resources via the intranet or a research portal in a way that makes sense to users. The topics covered include:

  1. Method for design
  2. Necessary technology
  3. Successful implementation

Who should attend? Anyone in leadership who plays a part in business decisions. Participants could come from the following groups:

  • Library Directors
  • Library Managers
  • Library staff
  • Intranet Managers 
  • Information Resources/Services Directors

Whether you are in the beginning stages of creating a research portal or redesigning your current solution, consider inviting your intranet committee or governance team members to attend the program with you. 

Cost:  $25 per person USD or $50 USD for groups of 2 or more
