Take some time out of your busy day to be introduced to some examples and types of key electronic resources, learn about what Electronic Resources Librarians (or those with responsibilities managing electronic resources) do all day, and some of the skills involved in doing that work.  The more you know about this part of every library’s collection the better you’ll be able to use them, show your patrons how to use them, and help your colleagues that work with them better able to help you. -Matt Thomas
