As you’ve probably noticed today, the RSC was a very busy group yesterday. One of our big decisions concerned the trial of career resources in June. For the past several years we have subscribed to WOIS, first as a print product and then as an e-resource. Although we overcame the password distribution hurdle last year, the interface of this product has not improved. And this year’s renewal cost had increased over last year’s cost.
Since the economic downturn there are more products available and WOIS faced some competition. After much discussion the RSC has decided to drop the subscription to WOIS, continue with Job & Career Accelerator, and evaluate career resource products on an annual basis. The WOIS subscription will end on August 30, 2010.
