On August 11 and 12, 2011, MSU’s Mitchell Memorial Library hosted over 100 librarians, administrative staff members, libraries and information sciences students, and other professionals from across the country for its annual MidSouth e-Resource Symposium and Emerging Technologies Summit.
The MidSouth e-Resource Symposium – in its 10th year at MSU Libraries – fosters networking, communication, and education among all members of the serials information chain and provides a unique opportunity to enhance knowledge of issues surrounding the acquisition, operation, collection, and management of e-resources in libraries today. This year, Matt Goldner, Product and Technology Advocate at OCLC (Online Computer Library Catalog), shared a presentation on cloud computing and the future of libraries. Also featured during the Symposium was a focused discussion on the use and management of electronic resources in libraries.
