Event Details

Series Description

OhioNET’s Online Database Overviews are a series of freely available webinars, open to all library staff working in Ohio.  Many, but not all, of the databases featured in this series are available statewide. Each training session will be aimed at current users/subscribers and will include:

  • an overview of the resource(s) being featured (what content is included, what search options are available, who is the intended audience)
  • a review of access requirements and options for sharing/downloading content
  • an exploration of use cases and marketing ideas
  • a discussion of options for staff training to help end-users navigate the materials

Session Description
As we all plan for an evolving future, it’s important to ensure you can keep your virtual doors open. In this webinar, we’ll explore the features of a popular and useful set of digital information tools from Springshare: LibCal and LibAnswers. Many libraries have turned to these products (especially during the last 18 months) to help manage virtual contacts with their communities. In addition to Springshare content specialists, this session will also feature the input of staff at the University of Akron. If your library is one of the many new subscribers to these Springshare resources (or if you’re interested in learning more about them), sign up today for this free session.
