Presenters will demo their library sites showing access to both end-user and administrative sides.

Ms. Haley, has been an Athens user since January of 2007. Her organization was one of the first in the United States to adopt this resource for off-network access to library resources. She will be integrating EBSCO’s Discovery Service into Athens in the next couple of months to provide users with a more efficient way to locate needed information.
