The National Library continues a series of events dedicated to the methodological support for public libraries in various regions of our country.
An online seminar "Availability of the Virtual Reading Room resources of the National Library of Belarus in information and library services for users in the Minsk region" was held on June 10.
The online meeting was organized for our colleagues from the A.S. Pushkin Minsk Regional Library, centralized city and district library systems of the capital region. Ms Aksana Knizhnikava, Director General of the National Library of Belarus, opened the event with a welcome speech.
The possibilities and advantages of the corporate acquisition of electronic resources through the Virtual Reading Room of the National Library, as well as an overview of databases for various categories of users of public libraries were introduced to the participants. Ms Maryja Damouskaja, Head of the Corporate Interaction Department made the presentation. Particular attention was paid to such an urgent issue as the algorithms for using electronic resources when organizing services in remote mode. Possibilities of promotion to the user environment and popularization of databases generated by public libraries of the Minsk region through their presentation at the Virtual Reading Room site were discussed.
The Virtual Reading Room is open for cooperation with all libraries and information centres in our country regarding subscription to licensed databases and training to work with them.
We will be eager to meet new partners!
