*Emerald lAUNCHES EMERALD Librarian toolkit TO ENSURE LIBRARIANS
OBTAIN BEST VALUE AND MAXIMUM USE FROM THEIR EMERALD SUBSCRIPTIONS*



UK  9 November, 2005, Emerald Group Publishing, the worlds leading
management and library & information science publisher, has launched the
Emerald Librarian Toolkit, a series of free guides which will enable
librarians to better market the electronic full text, reviews and
abstracts to their faculty and student user base, to encourage optimum
use of services.  The toolkit comprises modules ranging from training
users to monitoring usage and promoting Emerald within the institution.
It is available now, both online
(www.emeraldinsight.com/librariantoolkit
<http://www.emeraldinsight.com/librariantoolkit>) and hard copy.



Topics covered by the Librarian Toolkit include:

                    *Using and Promoting Emerald*: Posters, training
presentations (which can be tailored by librarians to their users
requirements), suggested emails to faculty and users, and step-by-step
guides

                    *Linking*: how to create links to full text, embed
Emerald search boxes in websites

                    *Usage Statistics*: easy to set up usage patterns
and reporting

                    *Administration*: includes viewing subscriptions
and editing user profiles



Toolkit resources comprise a mix of reporting tools, online learning
tools, printed how-to leaflets and promotional items, such as
posters.  The mix is designed to support a choice of promotion channels
including induction/training sessions, point-of-use materials and
integration of online resources into student websites and portals.



Carol Robertson, Usage Development Manager, at Emerald explains why the
company has invested in this new initiative, Encouraging increasing use
of high quality online subscriptions, by both faculty and students, is
an ongoing challenge for academic librarians. At Emerald, we are
committed to working in partnership with our clients to help them ensure
that high quality, peer-reviewed journals are used as fully as possible
and we see the new toolkit as an important contribution to this goal.



The Librarian Toolkit has been designed to help Emerald customers easily
set up usage monitoring reports with outputs including usage numbers and
usage pattern reports.   The usage promotion features in the toolkit
will make it easier for librarians to convince faculty and students of
the value and quality of Emerald resources, and so discourage students
from surfing the web for unqualified information to support their studies.



Emerald are initially issuing printed versions of the toolkit to many
subscribers and further packs will be distributed on account management
visits, through training visits and at conferences.  All materials are
also available online at: www.emeraldinsight.com/librariantoolkit
<http://www.emeraldinsight.com/librariantoolkit>



Materials are already available in English, Spanish, Portuguese and
Catalan with Greek, Italian, French, Russian, Farsi and Turkish in
production and Japanese and Mandarin to follow shortly.



Emerald will be exhibiting at the Online Information show, stand number 170.
