The creation and placement of proper electronic resource links for E-resources is critical to helping patrons discover these valuable statewide-licensed resources and access them with a minimum of clicks.  Massachusetts Library System member libraries should use this form to find their direct URL's to place on their library web pages for easy access to statewide-licensed electronic resources. One link covers both in-library and remote access.

You can link to an entire group of licensed resources by vendor, or link to individual electronic resources.  Linking to individual products is great for subject-oriented and children or young adult web pages. Strategic placement of as many links as necessary to put the resources where your patrons are boosts usage.

A new way to stay up-to-date on these valuable resources is by setting up an RSS feed to MBLC's new Statewide Electronic Resources Blog.

This Web site, and other programs of the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, is funded in part with funds from the
Institute of Museum and Library Services, a federal agency that fosters innovation, leadership and a lifetime of learning.
