SAGE’s Elisabeth Leonard will be giving a presentation on a panel on Sunday from 1-2:30:

Reference Publishing Discussion Forum: Are Users Finding our Online Reference Resources?

Libraries spend a great deal of money on quality online online reference resources, in the hopes that they will be useful to our communities. But are they being used? How do users discover reference resources in the online environment: teaching, research guides, stand-alone vendor resources? How do we enable users to cross multiple interfaces to reach reference sources? Join our discussions with librarians and vendors on these issues.
