NISO Two-Part Webinar, Library As Publisher, Part One - Current Status and Impact on Scholarly Communication

In an age when rapid reference inquiries may be handled through a mobile phone and a search engine, reference work in the library must change and expand. How is that unfolding?

How are librarians combining free and subscription resources? This webinar will examine a variety of approaches to enhanced service.
