Trial database: Libraries in a Digital Age

Henry Stewart Talks have developed and compiled a new series, Libraries in a Digital Age, edited by Professor Derek Law, Chair of the JISC Advance Board.  Access to the eleven presentations in the series is freely available for the remainder of 2012.

The editor and speakers in the series are leading and internationally recognized academics, specialists in their field, who work with Henry Stewart Talks to ensure that the talks provide a trustworthy, comprehensive and up to date review.   This series is targeted towards both students of information science and practitioners concerned about trends in library practice. It will also prove of interest to institutional managers and policy makers considering the future of libraries in their institutions.

This trial is available until 31 December 2012 and is accessible through the link above or from the E-Resources@the University of Melbourne blog where you can also leave comments about the database.
