On Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, Ellen M. and I participated in the first Online Ares Seminar sponsored by Atlas Systems. It was a series of presentations on various Ares and E-reserve related subjects. Presenters included David Larsen from the University of Chicago, Crystal Hester from Case Western, Dru Zuretti from the CCC, Angela Mott from the University of Florida, as well as Stephanie Spires and Genie Powell from Atlas Systems.
Some of the seminar seemed geared to prospective customers but it was good to review the system and all that it offers. Two sessions stood out. The session on Copyright, presented by Zuretti, was thorough and well organized and an excellent review. The last session, “Getting the Word Out,” presented by Angela Mott, was the most informative of the seminar. Ellen and I are excited about marketing our Course Reserves and using some of Mott’s suggestions.
