How do you save costs, increase shelf space, and boost usage in the 21st Century?
Meeting the research needs of the 21st century library patron isn’t the simplest of endeavors. You have to make sure your collection is current and authoritative, yet comprehensive. But, aren’t you running out of shelf space? And do your patrons even know of the resources and tools you have available online, and the benefits of using them?
“Geeking over Google and eBooks” will highlight the benefits of integrated collaboration tools available to your patrons through Gale eBooks on GVRL. Katrina Stokes, Director at Warren County-Vicksburg Public Library (MS) discusses how collaboration features, such as Google Apps for Education tools like Drive and Docs, changed how her library provides and promotes their reference content.
Listen to Katrina as she recalls personal patron accounts of GVRL successes like providing homework help and supporting test prep for people entering the military. Through expanded access and discovery, Gale eBooks on GVRL can increase shelf space, decrease costs, and empower your patrons.
