No Local Statistics for ProQuest E-Book Central
Please note that all participating institutions will have a unique link for ProQuest E-Book Central available in the Links Generator. However, at this time local statistics will not be available for patron activity in ProQuest E-Book Central. We apologize for any inconvenience and will provide an update when there is additional news to share regarding the availability of local statistics in ProQuest E-Book Central.

Promoting the New E-Book Titles to Residents
Don't be surprised if you see a POWER Library advertisement on Google!
A portion of the funds allocated for this project were used to secure a marketing company to lead an outreach effort to promote the new e-book titles. The outreach effort will include online advertising, social media activity, infographics, and bookmarks. Don't be surprised if you see a POWER Library advertisement when searching Google! Additionally, a POWER Library blog will be in place to provide targeted promotion of the new e-book titles.

Help Us Get Feedback! Add the Feedback Image and Link to Your Website.
We need your help to get feedback from non-users!
A POWER Library website refresh is in the works, and HSLC seeks feedback from both users and non-users.  However, getting the attention of non-users is not easy!  Are you able to assist us by promoting our feedback survey link on your website for a few weeks?

We would greatly appreciate your assistance by adding an image and link to your website inviting users to complete the survey. We have made this easy by making copy and paste code available for you to include on your website. The code can be obtained in the POWER Library - For Librarians

We thank you in advance for helping us to make the POWER Library website even better! The survey will be available until May 31.

Survey Being Conducted to Help Refresh the POWER Library Website!
The POWER Library website was created in 2013. While it has done well to stand the test of time, the addition of services, updated navigation trends, etc., are prompting us to obtain feedback from users of all types as the first step in refreshing the POWER Library website.

To that end, we are conducting a survey that includes prominently placed invitations throughout the POWER Library. The survey will be available until May 31.

We want feedback from everyone who works or volunteers in a library too! Please select the survey link below to provide us with your opinion!
