E-resource access beyond the pandemic: improving library patron experience
Vee Rogacheva, Service Design Lead, and Jas Sahota, Product Manager OpenAthens JISC
About this talk
Now more than ever libraries need to ensure their patrons can access electronic content when on and off campus. But how is this done in a secure, reliable, and efficient way? Can improved access to content improve learners and researcher’s engagement and academic results?
