** Apologies for Cross-Posting ** A UKSG Seminar aimed to meet the needs of librarians working in Further Education: Please feel free to pass this on to colleagues in Further Education. UKSG E-Resources for Further Education Wednesday 25 February 2009 The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, London A one-day seminar for those interested in the day-to-day handling of e-resources in Further Education Colleges ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Whilst there are similarities between the academic demands placed on both Higher Education and Further Education libraries with regard to providing users with appropriate collections of learning materials, the constraints and challenges in applying this to e-resource provision are quite different. This seminar will focus specifically on the Further Education sector, and will address the issues and practicalities of providing and managing effective high quality e-resources collections within Further Education Libraries, providing an informative day for anyone involved in the provision of e-resources in FE libraries. There will be opportunities to hear of best practice case studies in the fields of purchasing e-resources and also in marketing techniques and strategies. Similarly, there will be a chance to find out about usage statistics and performance indicators and how best to use these to inform your e-resource practices. The event will also give delegates the opportunity to meet with e-resource vendors who specialise in providing e-resources to the Further Education sector (including Cengage, Dawson and EBSCO Publishing), as well as being a platform for discussion, problem solving and networking. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ PROGRAMME 10.00 Registration and coffee 10.15 Welcome and introduction by the Chair and UKSG representative Graham Stone, Electronic Resources Manager/Repository Administrator, University of Huddersfield 10.30 Putting the E in FE: managing e-resources in FE Tom Roper, Head of Learning Resources, South Thames College 11.00 Vendor presentation 1 11.10 Vendor presentation 2 11.20 Vendor presentation 3 11.30 Break 11.50 Diving in at the deep end – platforms for effective e-resource management Virginia Havergal, e-Learning Advisor (Learning Resources), JISC RSC-SW 12.20 Licensing online resources for HE in FE: perspectives, tips and advice to ensure you get what you want for the people who need it Liam Earney, Collections Manager, JISC Collections David J Parkes, Associate Director, Information Services, Staffordshire University 12.50 Lunch 13.30 Understanding the use of your e-resources Kate Price, E-Strategy & Resources Manager, University of Surrey 14.00 The e-resources club sandwich – recipes for successful e-resource marketing Anthony Beal, Learning Resources Manager, West Cheshire College Leo Appleton, Planning and Business Manager, Liverpool John Moores University 14.30 Tea 14.50 Vendor presentation 4 15.00 Vendor presentation 5 15.10 Vendor presentation 6 15.20 The e-books for FE project: a national digital library for FE colleges Anna Vernon, e-books for FE Project Manager, JISC Collections 15.50 Evaluation forms and summing up 16.00 Close of seminar Fee FE/HE institution delegates £40.00 + £6.00 VAT (total £46.00) Non-FE/HE institution delegates £140.00 + £21.00 VAT (total £161.00) The fee includes refreshments and lunch.
