ACI Information Group will be attending the 2016 MOBIUS Annual Conference to showcase the ACI Scholarly Blog Index to librarians and other information professionals interested in library resources, acquisitions, and collection development. The conference will be held from Monday, June 6 through Wednesday, June 8 at the Holiday Inn Select Executive Center in Columbia, Missouri. ACI Scholarly Blog Index Manager Pat Sabosik and ACI Vice President of Content Administration Aura Novembre will demonstrate ACI’s scholarly blog discovery service and innovative workflow tools to conference attendees.
The aim of the MOBIUS Consortium is to share library materials, information, and services using accessible, cost effective methods. MOBIUS’ member libraries and partnerships span multiple states, including Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Colorado – and partnerships with other states are welcomed. As a research database with content specifically curated for the academic research community, the ACI collection parallels MOBIUS member goals for quality information resources and services to library users.
“Confirming its importance through inclusion in major discovery services (EBSCO, WorldCat, ProQuest Summon), the ACI Scholarly Blog Index is an exciting new way to follow academic discourse and research, providing librarians, students, and researchers with a trustworthy means of discovering scholarly material that might otherwise remain obscure in the murky realm of the blogosphere.”

If you haven’t yet explored ACI, use promo code LEARN and discover why the ACI Scholarly Blog Index is “highly recommended” by ALA’s CHOICE Reviews and won the 2016 SIIA CODiE Award for Best Scholarly Research Information Solution. With positive reviews from the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS), The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research, and CHOICE, ACI’s metadata-enhanced content is available in the most popular discovery services used by librarians today – including ProQuest Summon, EBSCO Discovery Service, and OCLC WorldCat. The MOBIUS Conference will be a great opportunity for librarians to find out how ACI is meeting the needs of researchers around the world.
“The Index is very user friendly, with a clean, uncluttered design… Enhancements such as Bookmarks, Lists, and ACI Stream allow users to save and access relevant materials every time they log in. Searches yield fruitful results, benefiting authors and readers symbiotically. The layout of the search results encourages users to turn a query into a fulfilling pilgrimage for more resources.”
