ELM Input Session: Crafting a new statewide database collection

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

eLibrary MN (ELM), formerly known as Electronic Library for Minnesota, is the statewide database collection. Every five years we ask for your input to gauge if these databases are meeting your patrons' needs. We invite you to be part of this process by attending this session to learn more about the decision-making process, provide feedback on current databases, and share ideas for new resources. This will be an active, discussion-driven session. Bring your ideas to help craft the new ELM!
