Want to learn how BadgerLink can help you, your library patrons or students? Often wonder what BadgerLink has to offer? Need to squeeze learning into an already tight schedule? Ever want to eat lunch with a Badger? Ok, well…we are kidding about this last one… The Wisconsin Dept. of Public Instruction, Resources for Libraries & Lifelong Learning team, has organized another year of the popular BadgerLunch webinar series to help folks make better use of BadgerLink.
This series of learning sessions will explore BadgerLink’s rich collection of information tools. Each session covers one resource, database, or interface. All sessions are open to anyone who wants to learn. Topics include a description of the information/learning resource, searching techniques, and helpful features. All sessions are Thursdays at noon and last 30-45 minutes. Our Fall 2010 season schedule is below.
Each session is short so please log into the webinar a few minutes early so as not to disrupt the other participants. If you have little experience with webinars, then give yourself some extra time and log in a few minutes earlier.
An archive of previous sessions is found at http://www.badgerlink.net/training.html
BadgerLink is a project of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI), Division for Libraries, Technology, and Community Learning. The goal is to provide access to quality online information resources for all Wisconsin residents.
