A Collaborative Space for E-Resource Innovation. Thinking and 

Dear Fellow Members of the Educational Community,

I would like to invite you to join the Libraries Thriving online 
community, a space dedicated to communicating the value of 
libraries and their ability to impact the learning moment. 
Libraries Thriving differs from other professional networks and 
online communities that you're involved in because what happens 
in our space is theory combined with practical examples. 
Comprised of librarians, faculty, publishers, library vendors, 
researchers and other educators, this collaborative community is 
for sharing ideas and working together towards the common goal of 
increasing innovative use of e-resources.

There are numerous benefits to participating in this innovative 
online community including:

*1.  **The Opportunity to Attend Free Educational Seminars*

With the Credo Reference Online Seminar Series--Summer 2011 
beginning in July, there are still seats available to attend 
three informative seminars on subjects relevant to e-resource use 
in libraries.

*3.  **The Possibility of becoming a "Critical Colleague" through 
Participation in a Learning Community*

wrapping up, there are numerous opportunities to engage in both 
conversations and actions to transform what it means to have a 
thriving library.

of how we can make this community even more successful, e-mail me
