Description

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

Very Short Introductions* are short summaries of complex topics and a great place to start learning about new subjects. Oxford Research Encyclopedias* provide a comprehensive collection of in-depth, peer-reviewed summaries on a wide range of topics. In this session, attendees will learn about topics, features, and tools to help kids and teens navigate these online resources.

*This resource is available statewide.
