As part of their fall 2011 Online Seminar Series, Credo Reference has posted a seminar recording of Libraries Thriving and MultiGrain Sponsored Debate: Are Libraries Thriving? “an Oxford-style live debate, including audience participation and voting,” from November’s Charleston Conference. Participants wondered if, given the diverse complexity of today’s web enabled resources, libraries had a “tremendous opportunity” to prove their worth by showing that “they are well-equipped to help users navigate information resources and for users to benefit from this guidance.
Credo’s 2011 Online Seminar Series also includes talk-back sessions on the “E-Everything” pre-conference that Audrey Powers, a Research Librarian for the University of Florida, put together at the fall Charleston Conference. These sessions focus on innovative approaches to e-resource delivery and access. The first session featured Peter McCracken (ShipIndex), Cory Tucker (University of Nevada), Mark Johnson (HighWire Press) while the in second session , Stephen Rhind-Tutt (Alexander Street Press) joins Peter McCracken (ShipIndex) and Mark Johnson (HighWire Press).
