EBSCO California Community College Focus Group – South
Adele Enright worked with EBSCO to provide a location on the Rio Hondo College campus to host Southern California Community College Librarians Forum. EBSCO’s representatives included two V.P.s several product managers and technical managers as well as our local sales representative, Janet Lerch.  EBSCO wanted to hear from community college librarians and our unique perspective on serving community college students and what is needed to enhance students library and learning experiences.

EBSCO listened to the librarians concerns, answered questions, and provided an overall view of how they plan to proceed with new products, updated features, improvements, and with investments in open source products, in particular FOLIO; collaborative open source application for libraries.
