You are invited to join us in April for webinars covering two topics: Our Civil War Collections and an introduction to the COUNTER compliant usage reporting available to Accessible Archives subscribers.
The Civil War Collection
Wednesday, April 6, 2016 at 10am EDT
Thursday, April 7, 2016 at 1pm EDT
Host: Genny Jon
The Civil War Collection from Accessible Archives is a full-text digital collection comprised of seven parts and providing topical access to an essential corpus of regimental histories, personal narratives, and newspapers.
This collection provides an unmatched depth of personal insight: the reasons individuals volunteered, the wonderment of leaving home, the excitement of initially going to the front, the clash of arms, the drudgery of camp life, the boredom of garrison duty, and the anguish of imprisonment are expounded in these materials.
Attitudes toward officers and fellow soldiers, the enemy and the political questions of the war are recorded with a richness that brings new credibility and perspective to scholarly research.
What is COUNTER?
Thursday, April 28, 2016 at 1pm EDT
Hosts: Bob Lester and Stuart Maxwell
Accessible Archives recognizes the importance of usage reporting and we have made a commitment to provide COUNTER compliant usage reporting to our subscribers. Working with Scholarly iQ, Accessible Archives provides librarians with access to their COUNTER reports through an intuitive web portal as well as a SUSHI web service for harvesting reports from multiple discovery services.
Please join Accessible Archives and Scholarly iQ for an exploration of COUNTER, its uses by Librarians, and the procedures for generating usage reports.
