Free Webinar Series: Online Database Overviews

Join us for our Online Database Overviews webinar series — open to all library staff working in Ohio at no charge. 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 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
