Use your brand to your advantage
Gain visibility: Students already go to EasyBib and use it. But when you enable the additional functionality and features of Library Edition, it becomes an even more valuable experience for your users. And it puts your library resources where they're already going.
Gain usage: Beta sites saw increased usage for EasyBib Library Edition. Anywhere from 65-100% more. And when library resources such as virtual reference/chat boxes are available, students were more likely to take advantage of those, too.
Gain appreciation: EasyBib Library Edition fills the gap between expert citation software packages and doing it "by hand." It's perfect for undergraduates who need intuitive, fast and simple citations.
How it works and why students will love it
Anyone who visits EasyBib.com from a campus-IP range will automatically be re-directed to your customized site. Students will appreciate the Library Edition over the free edition available on EasyBib.com for several reasons, including:
- Library Edition removes the advertising and instead promotes the institution and the library
- Students gain additional citation capabilities as well as the "Notebook" and "Evaluating Web sites" features
- It offers discovery of library resources and reference services right when they need them—as they’re doing their research.
Plus there is no learning curve with the site. It also helps ensure students connect their citation and research activities with library resources (both printed and human). In addition, EasyBib Library Edition may lessen the need for bibliographic instruction on citations and citation management systems.
