New Services to State Employees Web Page

Helping state employees find information needed for their work is one of the most important jobs of the State Library.Our new and improved Services to State Employees page and Beyond the Lions blog were developed to make it easy for state employees to find and use all the resources available to them through the State Library.

The News for State Employees section will feature new and enhanced services and materials.  Look here for announcements about classes and other events,   additional databases and online subscriptions, and improvements to existing resources.

In Beyond the Lions, State Library reference librarians will offer research tips, suggested resources on topics of interest to state government, and a heads up on new print and online materials.  Readers will be able to offer comments or additional suggestions through the Comments section.  Be sure to add Beyond the Lions to your RSS feed or sign up for email updates.

The familiar links from the previous Services to State Employees page are still available, on the left side of the page.  You can link quickly to our online catalog WebLion, our Online Resources page, and our live chat Ask a Librarian service.
