EBSCO Publishing Australasian Training Update

July 2011

"The trainer was extremely knowledgeable. Presented the session clearly and was easy to follow. Very thorough and informative." -- Medical Librarian

Dear All,

Please find below our training schedule for July!

This month, we've scheduled more training sessions covering the upcoming changes to DynaMed!
We've also scheduled a 'Hot Tips for Corporate Libraries' session - which we'll aim to get through in 20 minutes!

If the database you'd like training on is not listed below, feel free to request a session!
If the session you're interested in attending coincides with something else in your schedule, let us know, and we will record the session for you - and send you a link to the recording.

If you know of any library staff at your institution who may be interested in attending these free training webinars, please feel free to forward this update, and encourage them to sign up as well via the ANZ Training Notification form. The more, the merrier as far as we’re concerned!
