It’s that time of year again when we begin preparing for the Database Roadshow. This year’s Roadshow is all about change. Attend this NCompass session if you’d like an overview of some of the changes we’ll be talking about during the Roadshow. We’ll also toss out a few database tips and tricks along the way.

      This year’s 12th annual Database Roadshow is all about change.  Since the 2008 Roadshows there have been a number of enhancements and upgrades to both the NebraskAccess website and the databases.  Instead of focusing on a subset of the databases like we have the past two years, we are going to talk about changes and enhancements affecting many of our subscription services.
    • The ever-growing list of changes includes:
      New NebraskAccess website
      New eLibrary interface
      Enhancements to Wilson databases
      New databases added to FirstSearch
