Many of us working directly with e-resources in libraries would like to feel more confident in our understanding of the related technology. Managing e-resources and making them available to end-users is quite different from dealing with print products, but many of us have moved from one to the other, picking up expertise informally. As a result we probably all have gaps in our knowledge and understanding, and the need to gain a proper balanced overview of the technical environment is crucial if we are to do our jobs effectively.
The Understanding E-Resources Technology course will give you a good understanding of the underlying technicalities involved in e-resource set-up and delivery, including e-journals, online databases and e-books, and will help you feel more confident in your day-to-day work.
