Is your library an EBSCO Discovery Service customer, or are you considering EDS?

Come to the first EDS conference to share good ideas and learn tips and tricks from other EDS users. Why not share your experience? These are some of the themes we hope to cover, but if you’ve got a great idea please don’t feel limited:

·         EDS and Information Literacy

·         Improving Student Experience with EDS

·         EDS and LibGuides

·         EDS and Widening Participation

·         EDS and Hard to Reach groups

The University of Liverpool was one of the first UK libraries to implement EDS in 2010; we are delighted to host the first EDS conference and hope it will be the first of many.
