Summary:

Libraries are experiencing an increased demand for e-content along with a need to improve the speed of its delivery and fulfillment. This has resulted in greater challenges and an examination of the tools that provide digital access to materials for faculty, students and researchers.

Two solutions over the past year, reading lists and document delivery, have grown in importance and emerged as being vital to the delivery of course and library materials.

Gain insight into how the California State University San Marcos library is using both tools to address users’ needs while improving organizational workflows.

We’ll also include a short overview of two solutions, RapidILL and Leganto, and how they can help your library drive usage in courses.
