Introducing AM Explorer to Students: A Subject Liaison Perspective

In July 2020, Adam Matthew Digital hosted a webinar with two librarians whose institutions have successfully integrated AM Explorer into their library systems and services. Jeff Liszka, Department Liaison for Arts and Humanities at Trinity College, Connecticut, and Dr Hope Williard, Academic Subject Librarian at University of Lincoln, UK, shared their experiences with course integration, collection promotion, and building student confidence with primary sources available through AM Explorer.

Assessing Digital Primary Source Usage: Value and Impact for Academic Libraries

This paper aims to explore how digital primary sources are used in parallel with how academic librarians assess usage and value in these collections. By examining key metrics, case studies and literature around assessing impact of digital primary source collections, this white paper interrogates how patronsutilize digital primary sources and whether those case studies draw parallel with the ways in which librarians judge impact and value of such collections in the context of their own institutions.
