Information about Vendors and Subscription Databases

Resource Vendors

Many of the vendors that provide online resources through the Missouri State Library have trainings to learn how to use the resources and promotional materials to print and use to let patrons know what is available to them. You can also look at other libraries' websites to see what they offer their patrons to get more ideas about resources available from vendors.
