Oxford's EPIC Roadshow - confirmed dates & locations

9 January 2017

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all managed to have a nice wee break over the Christmas period. 

My first update for 2017 is to let you know the confirmed dates and locations for the Oxford University Press upcoming EPIC Roadshow (which I mentioned in my last email update in 2016). OUP will be showcasing the subscription options that they will be offering NZ libraries through EPIC in 2017. 

The dates and locations are as follows:

  • Monday 16 January: Auckland - The University of Auckland, Dining Room, 10am-12pm
  • Tuesday 17 January: Wellington - Te Papa, Blue Whale Room, 10am-12pm
  • Wednesday 18 January: Christchurch - The Heritage Hotel, 28-30 Cathedral Square, 10am-12pm
  • Thursday 19 January: Dunedin - Hotel Distinction, 6 Liverpool Street, 10am-12pm

Morning tea will be provided at all venues on arrival.

Representatives from all New Zealand libraries are welcome to attend. If you would like to attend, please RSVP via email by Thursday 12 January to Andrea Gilbey at Oxford University Press.

And finally, just a reminder that EPIC subscription options for the new 2017-2018 subscription year (beginning 1 April 2017) are continuing to be rolled out via the EPIC website, so please do check them out (instructions on how to do this can be found here). In some cases, trial access to products can be found via the secure Vendor's subscription pricing options pages. If this isn't the case, please contact the vendor directly to arrange trials.
