While we are getting more and more questions with references to “CBA’s”, Social Studies was not one of the specific areas that our Reference Services Committee identified as an area for eresource collection development in 2010. That being said, please feel free to explore these trials set up by the Washington State Library and, please, share your feedback!
We have been assigned a new Sales Representative by ProQuest who is offering training on our subscription products. Our RSC was tasked with determining which products currently have the highest demand for training.
Here are the top two ProQuest resources that RSC reported a demand for:
- HeritageQuest Online (5 requests)
- Ethnic NewsWatch (4 requests)
Terry and I will follow up with our ProQuest Representative to schedule trainings in March – April. More information soon!
Remember that the survey will begin on February 22. You’re only counting incoming calls. And the referral information at the bottom of the form is just informational for us at this point in time. You don’t need to tally each referral.
Just a reminder, that to get to any of the content within Job & Career Accelerator, one needs to create a username and password. If an account has already been set up within LearningExpress Library, the same username and password should already be valid and work to log into Job & Career Accelerator. Please let us know if you have any questions!
Fly-tying makes the top ten again!

Our print subscriptions for ValueLine hit the proverbial bump in the road this past month. Although we renewed subscriptions for 16 of our community libraries, the issues did not arrive on schedule. Denise Walster in Acquistions needs to know if you’re still having problems, so please have the staff member who manages ValueLine in your library contact Denise.
And we plan to migrate to the online edition sometime in the future, hopefully 2011. This will eliminate the delivery issues and it will allow us to offer ValueLine to our online customers–trust me when I say that they’ve asked for it!
