UKSG E-Journal Technical Update


 


Thursday 5 July 2007


The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, London SW1


 


Course summary


Many of us working directly with e-journals in libraries or as
intermediaries or publishers would like to feel more confident in our
understanding of the basic technology.  Managing 
e-journals and making them available to end-users is quite different from
dealing with print, but many of us have moved from one to the other, picking
up expertise informally.  Even then, 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. 

To meet the needs of the groups identified above, the UK Serials Group is
continuing to offer its very successful practical one-day E-Journal
Technical Update course run by Simon Inger Consulting.  Simon Inger has a
wealth of experience in technical and business matters concerning electronic
journals.


Why you should attend


You should gain a good understanding of the underlying technicalities and
feel more confident in your day-to-day work.  The course will be invaluable
for anyone from a non-technical background working with e-journals.  Numbers
are limited so that individual advice can be given during the day – the
atmosphere will be friendly and supportive.  The format will be a mix of
taught and demonstration/discussion sessions.


Course level and previous knowledge required


It is recommended that those completely new to dealing with journals should
first attend a ‘UKSG Serials Practitioners’ seminar, a one-day course run in
a variety of locations which covers all aspects of the serials industry and
includes an introductory technical session.


Learning objectives


*	Learn how to overcome common problems in implementing e-journals and
other online resources
*	Have the tools to help you decide the best way of setting up access
to e-journals and online resources in your institution/organisation
*	Be confident that you understand the technical landscape when
dealing with 
e-journal providers.
