How do you evaluate what databases should be included in those provided by NSW.net?
The content of databases is evaluated using selection criteria established by the NSW.net Content Working Group. This group consists of representatives from small, medium and large metropolitan and country public libraries, the State Library and NSW.net and the group meets several times each year. In consultation with the Content Working Group, NSW.net selects databases for trial and before setting up a trial, gauges interest from public library network. If there is sufficient interest from public libraries a trial is hosted on the NSW.net website. The trial will generally run for 30 days and members of the Content Working Group and the public library network are invited to assess the product and complete the online evaluation form. Assuming that the evaluations are positive and the vendor agrees to the key requirements for participation in the NSW.net Consortia Opt-in Scheme; the product is offered to the public library network as a Consortia Opt-in Offer.
