European Sources Online – the way ahead
Subscribers in Wales will be pleased to know that ESO will continue to be freely available to all public organisations and individuals for the rest of 2013 using the current access arrangements.
From 2014 we are changing the business model and editorial strategy of ESO so that it will become a free access service to anyone throughout the world. At that point we will stop authentication procedures to gain access to ESO so there will be no need to notify us of IP addresses or request password access.
To discuss some of the thinking behind the changes taking place with ESO and to refresh you on what ESO can offer to seekers of European information within Wales, we are holding a short training session in Cardiff Central Library at 09:30 to 10:30 on Thursday 9 May 2013 in the Central Training Suite.
This session is part of an exciting day for Cardiff Central Library as they will be formally launching a new Europe Direct Information Centre on 9 May 2013 (Europe Day) and you are invited to take part in this event. To reserve your place both at the ESO Seminar and the wider event please email The Information Department at Cardiff Central Library firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 029 2078 0963 / 0964. Even if you cannot attend the ESO Seminar at 09:30 Ian Thomson, Executive Editor of ESO will be manning a Cardiff EDC stand in the Central Library all day and can answer any queries you might have.
