Libraries Thriving - online collaborative community

With low usage and shrinking budgets, libraries are challenged to justify resource investments now more than ever. At the same time, information users are ill-prepared to navigate the amount and quality of content on the web. This creates a tremendous opportunity for libraries to show that they are well equipped to help users navigate information resources and for users to benefit from this guidance. Libraries Thriving is an online collaborative community designed to tackle this opportunity. Librarians, teaching and learning centers, faculty and researchers are sharing ideas and working together on this site to further commons goals of increasing innovative use of e-resources. Libraries Thriving will provide:

* Educational online seminar series
* Best practices
* Research and resources
* Discussion areas
* Community support
* Project support
* Podcasts
