Focusing on what we can do as opposed to what we cannot, and always seeking to offer more, we are pleased to be able to share our new and greatly improved website as well as new information resources that can be accessed virtually!
It was true before the pandemic but only reinforced now that we are operating in a world accessed largely through computer screens that an organization’s website is in many ways its interface with the world it serves. We hope you find our website to be a pleasure to access and reflective of The Library as a vibrant institution ready and able to serve our community.
You will find that the website has a lot of dynamic content including an automatically loading course and events calendar on the home page. It is organized in accordance with our operational areas of focus, Research, Education and Engagement, making it easy to navigate to find what you came looking for. And we hope that those who visit for one reason encounter content about other ways in which The Library enriches the insurance and risk management community.
“Come for the courses, stay for the online research capabilities” … or “Come to sign up for an event and stay for an appreciation of the history that we hold”
At the same time we are launching our new website, we are excited to announce the availability of new and streamlined information resources. Our catalog and proprietary articles index which we have always offered are hopefully easier to find and access. In addition, we now offer a large database of insurance and risk management and business resources including journals and other periodicals that are full-text searchable and for the most part downloadable. This offering provides our members with valuable information that they can access themselves remotely.
However you use the new website, we hope you see it is reflective of The Insurance Library’s mission to enrich the insurance and risk management community and recognize our efforts to continually expand our services.
