New York, NY (PRWEB) January 06, 2016
ACI Information Group’s research database, the ACI Scholarly Blog Index, is now available to LYRASIS member libraries. Through a new partnership, LYRASIS will offer the ACI Scholarly Blog Index as part of its continued mission to provide content and services using creative solutions that increase savings opportunities for members.
“LYRASIS works closely with member libraries to represent important content collections,” explains ACI Information Group President Larry Schwartz. “The ACI partnership supports LYRASIS’ focus on digital content by bringing authoritative blog content from highly credentialed scholars in a variety of disciplines to its member libraries. The partnership also gives member libraries access to timely insights that researchers need but often have trouble finding.”
LYRASIS is the nation’s largest non-profit membership association serving libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural heritage organizations. The organization works closely with institutions to give them the guidance they need to effectively support information professionals.
“Through the ACI and LYRASIS partnership, researchers not only have easy access to scholarly blog content, but they can also review authors’ credentials and social media connections to better understand scholars’ areas of expertise and even connect with them online for further discourse,” says Schwartz. “This added layer of value truly helps information professionals who need to dig deeper than the written word might provide, to directly communicate with authors, and it directly supports LYRASIS’ goal to bring unique and new digital content collections to its member libraries.”
