Gale & LearningExpress Trainings in Late April

You might recall that the State Library hosted three Gale and LearningExpress trainings along the I-5 corridor in early March.  Those same trainings are now being offered in the rest of the state at the end of the month.  Read on for more details.

The Oregon State Library is sponsoring FREE  in-person trainings on our statewide databases, Gale and LearningExpress Library. We will offer the training in Klamath Falls on April 25th, Redmond on April 27th, and Hermiston on April  28th.  We will have a morning and afternoon session each day.  If a time slot fills up, it will be removed from the survey.  The morning will be an introduction to Gale and to LearningExpress Library, and the optional afternoon session will be about "Creating Subject Pages"  in Gale.  This 2.5 hour session will be a workshop on creating a linkable page that highlights the resources you have chosen for a specific subject and allows your patrons easy access to those periodicals and eBooks best suited to their needs.  Please bring a laptop if you have one available; however, it is not required.  While the training is free, we will not be providing snacks or lunch.  The trainings will be held from 9 am to 12:30 pm and from 1:30 to 4:00 pm. The intent is to provide basic training in the morning on both the statewide databases and to offer an enhanced training session in the afternoon that will provide more depth about the Gale databases.  If you have questions, please contact MaryKay Dahlgreen, Library Development Program Manager, at marykay.dahlgreen@state.or.us or 503-378-5012.

If you plan to attend a training, please register at http://library.state.or.us/services/surveys/survey.php?sid=561.  FYI, you will not receive a confirmation email after registering.

Thanks,
