In this time of lockdown and uncertainty, Softlink Information Centres asked its Liberty customers what changes have they faced, and managed?
Do you already have a large number of digital resources? Do you have more resources that, in an ideal world, you would love to digitize, but storage is an issue? Our hosted Liberty users are finding Softlink IC’s Massive Knowledge Repository (MKR) solution is the answer.
Has COVID-19 increased your request workload? Are your users discovering how great it is to have access to your knowledge center research services? Is managing your increased research load using spreadsheet or email even more inefficient now? Do you want to encourage your users to take advantage of your research skills?
Face-to face gatherings are preferable to many of us. However, the current health crisis means holding meetings and conferences in the traditional way is not possible. Fortunately, today’s technologies give us alternative ways to hold successful meetings. Last week, Softlink IC’s Online Liberty User Group Meeting was one such example.
Does your library management system integrate seamlessly with your eBooks? Is downloading the eResources they need a simple process for your users? It is if their library or knowledge center uses Liberty.
Our eagerly anticipated #gotknowledge2020 survey is now open. In the spirit of sharing, we are asking for 10 minutes of your time to complete this Softlink IC survey. We understand you are busy, and really do appreciate your time.
Interesting times! Many in the knowledge sector are working from home. Some are still working in their libraries and knowledge centers where limited foot traffic is the current norm. Softlink IC understands you are still busy providing resources services to your users during the lockdown. The need for resources and information services has not stopped. In fact, for many of you, the need for information and research services has increased.
For the past nine years, Softlink has put out its well-regarded annual school library survey. On April 16, 2020, Softlink IC will launch the first of its annual surveys into the special library sector.
Our Liberty and illumin users are located throughout the world. As a result, Softlink Information Centres has always believed in the importance of having an online presence. Now is an ideal time to remind you of all the ways we are there for you online. We hope it is reassuring, in these uncertain times.
Like many of us, you are probably now working from home with limited physical contact with the outside world. During these challenging times, staying electronically connected is more important than ever.
