Ebooks at the library
Monday March 5, 9am-10am
Wednesday March 14, 3pm-4pm
We've been busy at the library adding ebooks to our collections. This workshop will give you an overview of what type of ebooks we have available, where to find them, and how to download them to your mobile device or e-reader if allowed by our license agreement. If time allows we will also discuss other places to find quality ebooks besides the big-name sites you may already be familiar with.
** Date Change** Tuesday March 27, 4pm-5pm
Thursday March 29, 12:30pm-1:30pm
In this workshop Becca Cahill will demonstrate personalization features of our EBSCO databases that allow you to save and retrieve entire searches, set up RSS feeds that will deliver citations for newly added articles on your topic to your e-mail, and organize your research. If time allows, we will also explore personalization features of some of our other non-EBSCO databases.
