RSC Meeting: Electronic Resource Renewals

At $10.71/search in 2009, the Reference Services Committee decided not to renew LitFinder in 2010.  Alternate free resources, including Project Gutenberg, seem to be meeting our needs in this subject area.

We will be renewing our subscriptions to All-Data and the Historical New York Times.

Next up for consideration?  WOIS.  To make an informed decision, we will ask all staff to evaluate/trial three career products mid-June to mid-July.  Based on feedback we will make a renewal/purchasing decision for WOIS, Job & Career Accelerator, and  Gale Career Transitions.

In June we will also be trialling ValueLine Online.  This fall we will need to make the decision to keep our print subscriptions in some branches or subscribe to the online product and provide access to all branches and remote users.
