ER&L 101 (NEW FOR 2018!)
Along with workshops, ER&L is also looking for half-day courses to help introduce an attendee to a foundational area of librarianship (such as licensing, ebook management, troubleshooting) or an emerging but important topic starting at an introductory level. These courses would not require background knowledge of the topic and would be appropriate for a practitioner new to eresources or as an introduction to a new topic. Complimentary registration is offered to presenting course instructors. An honoraria will be given per course and distributed among the presenters. These courses will be held 1-5pm Sunday, March 4th and will be joined by a larger set of 101 sessions throughout the ER&L conference on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesay.

- Managing e-Resources & Licensing
