An important aspect of the life cycle of electronic resources is disseminating the arrival of new resources on campus and reminding the campus of currently subscribed materials. A database page accessible by subject or topic or format, training sessions by vendors either live or via the web, information literacy presentations for one-shot classes or where the entire campus is invited are standard marketing strategies. However, even with clear and comprehensive presentations, demonstrating awareness of the strengths and limitations of subscribed resources, if only a handful of the 15,000+ users show up, the program may feel like an exercise in futility. Another route to disseminate this important information is the Library EXPO or Vendor Fair. Vendors set up booths for three to five hours to meet with users. They provide give-aways and help with door prizes to lure students, faculty and administrators to the fair. Users can spare a short time to browse the booths between classes and meetings to learn about new resources and ask questions about their old favorites. This program will provide insights in the planning, marketing and assessment of the Library EXPO's held at IUP.
