Eric Ginsberg

Eric Ginsberg never took libraries seriously until 11 or 12 years ago when he realized he could order material online. He didn't enjoy browsing the stacks, so ordering what he needed "revolutionized" his library use. He says "I would just request and request and request." He had 30 to 40 items waiting for him at any one time. As a high school English teacher and a university professor, he was able to find better resources for his classes to use. When he needed more academic resources, he started to use the Link+ catalog to order materials from around the state. He says, "The Link+ expanded my abilities to research exponentially. I saw libraries in a new light." He now teaches his college students (who are studying to become teachers) how to use Link+ so that they can improve their teaching skills.
