eBooks–From NetLibrary to EBSCOhost for TexShare

This session is intended for librarians and library staff to assist them in the transition of eBooks from NetLibrary to the EBSCOhost interface. As NetLibrary content is being moved to EBSCOhost , both EBSCOhost and NetLibrary customers will have access to an eBooks preview. This class will include an overview of the preview account, information about additional functionality that will become available when the transition to EBSCOhost is complete, as well as a ‘sneak peek’ at Audiobooks on EBSCOhost.
