     Members of the Educational Community,

     

    Have you written about e-resources but don’t know where to share your finished product with other information professionals? Have you recently presented on e-resource innovation? Libraries Thriving would like to give you an opportunity to share your hard work!

    Libraries Thriving is an online community dedicated to communicating the value of libraries and their ability to impact the learning moment.  Comprised of librarians, faculty, publishers, library vendors, researchers and other educators, this collaborative community is for sharing ideas and working together towards the common goal of increasing innovative use of e-resources. One component of the site is a Research and Resources Reading Room, which provides access to e-resource innovation research. We’d like to add your research to the list! If you’re interested, please e-mail Laura Warren (laura.warren@credoreference.com) to get the sharing process started. 

    Don’t have research you’d like to share? There are other opportunities for participation in the community as well, including posting in the discussion forums, attending free educational seminars or participating in the fall learning community.  I invite you to sign up for the newsletter (http://www.librariesthriving.org/libraries-thriving-learning-community-2011-signup) to stay up to date on what’s happening in the community.  You can also like Libraries Thriving on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/libsthriving), connect with Libraries Thriving on LinkedIn (http://www.linkedin.com/groups/Libraries-Thriving-Collaborative-Space-EResource-3975729?home=&gid=3975729&trk=anet_ug_hm) and follow Libraries Thriving on Twitter (http://twitter.com/#!/libsthriving).

     

    Let the collaboration and e-resource innovation begin!
