Join The Palace Project team and librarians using the platform for a primer on The Palace Project app: what it is, how it works, and how librarians across the country are using it to increase access for patrons and maximize their acquisition budgets. We’ll walk you through the patron-facing app; the unique licensing models and content available in Palace Marketplace; the free open-access Palace Bookshelf collection; as well as implementation, hosting, and real-world examples from Palace libraries about how they are using and marketing Palace to their communities. There will also be an opportunity to get all of your questions answered.
