Within almost a two year-span, my quarterly reports showed an increase in research interaction between customers and the library. When I stayed with common communication methods of e-mail, fax, and US mail, the research requests were moderately steady. As I incorporated online capabilities through Citrix’s GoToMeeting, I introduced the customers to search guidance, tours of the online version of AGB’s library/resource center, On Demand Research, and Online Research Discussions on various topics related to the library/resource center’s collection. The research requests doubled. I could then see that the library’s collection could also play a big part in online research interaction between customers and the library. 

In the beginning, I used the library database that was created as a bibliographic database. In almost two years time, I have updated the database to not only offer annotated bibliographies but also offer full-text articles and documents within the copyright domain of AGB (the organization I work for). I began to wonder if I could incorporate the whole library into the Google environment. 

In my presentation, I will show how you can have a basic collection in an online database within a Google Environment.
