8 out of 10 college students agree that librarians add value to their search process.
But many students simply aren't using librarians and library resources--even though most agree they're valuable.* Now there's a way to meet your users and increase your visibility where students might need help: in citation and research management, and discovery - EasyBib Library Edition (http://www.oclc.org/info/easybib/)
Minitex and OCLC have worked together to offer special incentive pricing on EasyBib Library Edition when five or more Minitex libraries purchase new subscriptions before July 15.

Many students today--especially undergraduates--are using popular online tools like EasyBib.com to make the research process easier and faster. In fact, more than 26 million students use EasyBib, likely many at your institution. OCLC recently launched a partnership with EasyBib founders to put libraries and library resources right where students are already going. The result? EasyBib Library Edition: a customized version of EasyBib.com that incorporates your library's branding, includes additional citation styles, provides Web site evaluation tools and more.
You're not trying to change students' current behaviors--you're simply intercepting them where they're already going. And you're gaining additional visibility with your students--with no additional work for you!
