OASL/WLMA Conference Announcement
OSLIS Users,
 
OASL (Oregon Assn of School Libraries) and WLMA (Washington Library Media Assn) have put together a first rate conference for inservice weekend in October. Learn more about it at http://oemawlma2008.org/index.htm. You can register for the conference and for any of the extended session. 
 
Don't miss your chance to spend 3 hours Saturday morning (Oct. 11) with OSLIS 2.0 guru Patty Sorensen and an EBSCO national trainer. This session will prepare you to support your students and staffs as they navigate the ins and outs of the (almost) new OSLIS  interface and EBSCO's new 2.0 tools. Learn how to create and use your own space to store files (documents, graphics, articles) that are  available from computers at school, at home, at your public library, wherever you have access to the Internet for both OSLIS and EBSCO.
 
You will leave this session knowing about and being able to show users how to register and create their own My Stuff space. Studends and staff members who register on OSLIS 2.0 can not only access instructional support for completing a research project beginning with defining an assignment to reflecting on the completed project, but also store and share documents, files, pictures, receive RSS feeds and more.  The OSLIS 2 registration process will also allow school librarians and educators to communicate and collaborate with students about their project via OSLIS 2.
