IGI Global NZ visit

New EPIC vendor IGI Global's Director of E-Resources, Jackie Ricords, will be visiting Wellington and Auckland to promote the new IGI Global EPIC offering for their emerging technology books, journals and videos.

In her visits, she will cover the following:

  • Updates about IGI Global research
  • A platform tour and new features
  • Information about the IGI Global EPIC options for 2017-2018
  • An overview of IGI Global's free resources for technology research.

Jackie will be in Wellington on February 8.

  • She has arranged a training session for anyone who is interested in the Douglas Lilburn Room (Level 1) at the National Library of New Zealand from 11am-Noon.(Light refreshments will also be served).
  • She will also be available for individual library visits.

To RSVP for the training session or to arrange for an individual visit, please email Jackie directly at jricords@igi-global.com.

Jackie will also be in Auckland on February 9 & 10 and would like to arrange individual visits with libraries.

Again, please contact Jackie directly to arrange a visit.

Jackie will also be attending the ALIA Information Online Conference in Sydney from February 13-17 so if you are lucky enough to be attending as well and none of the above dates/times/locations work for you, please, again contact Jackie directly to arrange a time to meet at conference.
