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. Register now to attend our webinar called Creating a Research Portal, to be held on Thursday, January 21st, 2010, from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM Central Time.
This session 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:

Our thanks to Meredith Williams, (director of knowledge management at Baker Donelson), Tom Baldwin (chief knowledge officer at Reed Smith), Marty Metz (director of information technology at O’Melveny & Myers) and Elizabeth Ellis (partner at Torys) for their willingness to offer their intranets as case studies and work with us on the development of those case studies. We also want to thank Anna Shaw, commissioning editor at Ark Group, for her editorial expertise.
