NCompass Live: In Search of the Obscure – Using Library & Online Sources to Find Resources that are Out of the Ordinary

Learn some resources and tactics for finding unusual materials on next week’s NCompass Live webinar, ‘In Search of the Obscure – Using Library & Online Sources to Find Resources that are Out of the Ordinary’, on Wednesday, June 7, at 10am CT.

As more of the world has moved on-line, researchers are discovering items that they didn’t know were out there. We will share with you resources and tactics for finding unusual materials. For example, international libraries are open to sharing their collections but have unique challenges. Individual and regional libraries are creating online digital collections that can be accessed for free. We’ll also share some sites that you’ll want to avoid because they specialize in pirated information.

Presenters: Michael Straatmann, Associate Director for Collection Management; Joyce Melvin, ILL Manager; Amy Heberling, Borrowing/Resource Sharing Associate, University Libraries, University of Nebraska – Lincoln.
