Research Librarian Karen Oesterle and Executive Director Lucy Curci-Gonzalez participated in the Debevoise & Plimpton LLP Fourth Annual IDRG Resources Fair where they demonstrated the NYLI eBook collections to interested attorneys and helped show the value of eBooks and NYLI Seamless Catalog. This was a fantastic experience for us and we were happy to get some one-on-one time with users of our e-resources. We’d be pleased to attend other functions such as this and demo our eBooks to other member firms as well. Here are some takeaways from the event:

  • Many of the summer associates were aware of our eBooks through the use of our Seamless Catalog through “ELI” at Debevoise’s library and were delighted to see that it was seamless. They thought they were requesting Debevoise titles but they turned out to be NYLI titles and arrived promptly.
  • Several associates were already familiar with OverDrive and can now leverage that familiarity to use NYLI eBooks.
  • They were pleased to see the breadth of materials available in our 160,000 title EBL collection.
