Conference Proceeding: Ideas for Supporting Jewish Studies Research – An Interactive Session with EBSCO’s Executive Vice President

EBSCO’s has advisory boards for business, medicine, art, music, law, political science, and other academic disciplines, but it is not feasible to have a board for every subject area. As a result, EBSCO complements its boards by running informal focus groups with library experts in other disciplines. The company would like to receive feedback on how it can improve its platform in the area of Jewish Studies. EBSCO has a comprehensive discovery service and wants to ensure that it contains the most comprehensive coverage in all disciplines. Further, EBSCOhost is a platform for hundreds of databases (including Index to Jewish Periodicals, Jewish Studies Source, etc.) and more than 500,000 e-books, and the company would like to learn about improving these products and possibly adding new ones. EBSCO will give a review of its strategic direction and a summary of its related content, and then open the session for feedback from librarians.
