Learned something new-to-me today: Newsbank apparently has a freely available index of thier newspapers http://www.newslibrary.com
The results provide a direct link for users to buy the article for $2.95 ... but hey, it's a free indexing service
does anyone have guidelines at their library for what should and should not be a LibGuide? We have a library website that is outside of our LibGuides instance, and I'd like to come up with guidelines for what should be a page on that site and what should be a LibGuide. Thanks!
Meeting with a prof about his first library instruction session led to discussion of what the need actually is, led to him brainstorming about including me as a lab component for the research methods class they are designing for the major. W00t w00t baby!
If anyone happens to know of any recent Summon vs Primo comparisons that'd be fantastic. Also my lit search is making me ponder the pros/cons of convincing Google to sell libraries API access to Scholar so we could roll our own discover layer.
So frustrated. We bought journal packages. Cancelled indices. Bought Summon. Now, we cancel journal packages. We've destroyed the notion of access, and in the process we are completely screwing researchers.
