EBSCO Online Training Sessions Available From GALILEO - Late Summer/Early Fall 2007

Directors and Public Services Staff,

Many of you have made specific requests to have online training available for EBSCO sources via GALILEO. Please see the announcement below from the GALILEO Virtual Services Librarian, Karen Minton, for schedule and registration information. These sessions have had good reviews in the past. Thanks -- Toni Z.

Dear GALILEO Users,

Several new EBSCO resources were added to GALILEO menus this fiscal
year, and to help staff in libraries get acquainted with them, a series
of online training sessions have been scheduled. Overview sessions will
cover the new resources, as well as a look at new features in the
EBSCOhost interface. The K-12 session will concentrate on those
resources specifically geared to students and may be of interest to
public library staff and education students, in addition to K-12 media
specialists. The Literary Reference Center and Consumer Health Complete
session has been scheduled to offer a more in-depth look at two of the
new resources that feature their own unique content and environments.
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/
