GALILEO Database Training Opps Fall 2007 - EBSCOHOST, KIDS INFOBITS, & SIRS Databases

Dear GALILEO users,

Online training has been in demand in GALILEO libraries because it cuts down on travel time and expenses. Training on several databases presented by vendor trainers has been scheduled for this fall. Different vendors use different meeting/classroom products to present online training; registered participants will receive configuration instructions prior to the scheduled class time. Many libraries set up a computer with speakers and a projection system in a classroom style, making it possible for several staff to participate using one "seat" in the training. This has the advantage of offering dialog and shared learning experiences, in addition to leaving seats open for others.

The training is free and open to staff in all GALILEO libraries. Registration and more information on each of the sessions is available at http://www.usg.edu/oiit/training/
