Now more than ever, library patrons expect library resources to be available anytime, from anywhere. Your library is competing for “air time” of your valuable resources, requiring easy-to-understand authentication for access to services and resources from outside the library.

On August 11th at 11am Eastern, join a panel of subject matter experts from the OCLC cooperative to learn tips for providing successful, trouble-free remote access to all the valuable resources that your library has to offer. See how you can easily extend your library out into the lives, homes and offices of your users to promote increased engagement, broader reach and better library resource utilization.
