UKSG E-Resources Technical Update

 

Wednesday 27 October 2010: London

 


Course summary


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 UKSG E-Resources Technical Update 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. 

 


Why you should attend


The course will be invaluable for anyone from a non-technical background
working with 
e-journals and other e-resources.  The atmosphere of the day will be
friendly and supportive and participants will be encouraged to share any
issues or problems they encounter in their work. 

 


Course level and previous knowledge required


It is recommended that those completely new to dealing with journals should
first attend the UKSG Introduction to Serials and E-Resources Today, a
one-day seminar run in a variety of locations covering all aspects of the
serials and e-resources industry and featuring an introductory technical
session.  If you are not completely new to journals no previous knowledge is
required.

 


Learning objectives


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

 

Feedback from ERTU courses held in 2009

“It met needs that I didn’t know I had, especially on e-books.”

“Good coverage on all aspects, and the technical aspects were well explained
for the lay person.”

“Very thorough coverage of technology affecting libraries.”

“Excellent interaction and commentary – well done.”

“This course covered lots of things that I sort of thought I knew but was
never quite sure.  It’s all fallen into place now, so thanks!”

“Very professionally organised and presented.”

 

Course content

The course will be continually updated, but core content will include:
