How can libraries efficiently shift from physical to electronic resources?


The shift to online and hybrid teaching and learning environments is accelerating the demand for remote access to content. Libraries need electronic resources such as books, periodicals, music scores, streaming video and more.

Learn about ProQuest’s free, propriety process for matching physical materials to e-versions and how the results are used to:

  1. Support research, teaching and learning
  2. Inform print-to-electronic planning
  3. Create space for social distancing and other uses
  4. Save your library money

Courtney Fuson, Asset Management Librarian from Belmont University, will share her experiences working with ProQuest to provide more e-resources on a limited budget.

    Prior to August, 2019, Courtney was Belmont’s Electronic Resources Librarian for more than 10 years. During that time, there was a shift in the library’s collection strategy to prioritize ebooks, which is what prompted their use of ProQuest’s Title Matching Fast (TMF) service.
