Abstract

Database access is integral to libraries and connecting our users to these rich resources is paramount. In light of our stretched budgets and the mounting costs associated with subscription, we wonder if we should be expecting more out of our vendors. We need to shine a light on our vendors. For this poster, we plan to examine Lexis Academic and EBSCO and what they are doing well and what may need improvement.
