Hi Erika,
Don't overlook assistance from vendors.  They often have prepared content that is applicable to hitting the ground running with just a bit of tweaking on your part.

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone here has any tips, ideas, success stories, starting places, etc. for marketing and promoting electronic resources? I'm trying to find more ways to market and promote electronic resources at my library.

Currently, the main method is an "E-Resource Spotlight" that gets posted monthly and I created an Electronic Resources LibGuide that has information & a blog feed. Outside of that, I'm a little stuck on where to start and there isn't a lot of literature out there about marketing electronic resources. I want to do more than just a highlight on our website and find ways that could engage our users a bit more.

I'm hoping someone here has some feedback on how to "hit the ground running" with this - I don't have a marketing background and it definitely wasn't a huge conversation in my MLIS program. I'm open to any ideas and thoughts.
Thank you!

Erika Boardman
