Author Visits, BookFairs, Extended Hours
Please e-mail me the dates of your BookFairs so they can be added to the Library Services Calendar and set up in the @Alief_Libraries Twitter feed.
Also, please let me know what dates/times you will be having extended hours in your library. This information will also be posted in the Library Services Calendar and on the @Alief_Libraries Twitter feed.
ProTip: Destiny One Search
Does your Destiny OneSearch continually ask you for authentication?
Occasionally this happens because the authentication is mapped incorrectly. But more often, it happens because the user is clicking on the Database icon instead of the Show Resources icon.
I have a meeting with an EBSCO rep. later this week and hopefully he will be able to share a way that I can simply get these books added to the campus collections.
If you do not utilize the Digital Resources shared apps you need to remove the two Adam Matthew Digital databases. They will not be a part of TexQuest after September 2018.
Also, if you do not utilize the Digital Resources shared apps on your campus webpages you need to add the EBSCO Learning Express resource. Here is the customized link for Alief: http://www.learningexpresshub.com/prepstephighschool?AuthToken=49567841-19E4-49DA-9825-2CA8BEF1179D
