The ACI Information Group will be exhibiting the ACI Scholarly Blog Index in Booth 1001 at the 2016 ALA Midwinter Meeting & Exhibits conference from January 8-12, in Boston, Massachusetts. ACI Scholarly Blog Index Manager Pat Sabosik, Vice President of Content Licensing Aura Novembre, and President Larry Schwartz are looking forward to showcasing ACI‘s scholarly blog collection and comprehensive workflow tools to library and information science professionals at the conference.
With select posts featured in ALA’s new Choice tablet edition and with content available in common discovery services like ProQuest Summon, EBSCO Discovery Service, and OCLC WorldCat, ALA Midwinter will be a great opportunity for librarians to see for themselves just what the buzz is about. The ACI Scholarly Blog Index is the only repository of published scholarly blog content, offering online researchers the most comprehensive, authoritative, and credentialed collection of scholarly blogs available today.
Blogs indexed in ACI are individually curated by researchers with expertise in that blog’s topic or field of study, giving students, faculty, and librarians access to the highest-quality content available in today’s scholarly blogs – with enhanced tools and integrations (like support for Mendeley, Evernote, Zotero, and other platforms you already use) to seriously empower online research in colleges, universities, and other research institutions. From citation and export options to tools for bookmarks, lists, and features for sharing & collaborations, librarians are using ACI to help their online researchers find quality academic and research blogs.
Are you attending ALA Midwinter? If so, be sure to stop by Booth 1001 and say hello to Aura, Pat, and Larry. (And be sure to follow ACI on Twitter, where we’ll be posting photos from the conference, including booth photos and, quite possibly, a non-Portland carpet photo from Pat.) They’ll be happy to show you just how other librarians are using ACI‘s blog collection and unique workflow tools to help their students, faculty, and researchers find the best scholarly blog content in their academic disciplines.
