Online Training ‘At Your Leisure’



In addition to the live webinars in our training calendar, each month we try to pick some videos out there that you can watch “At Your Leisure.” These on-demand offerings caught our attention for December:

Chilton Library (Gale)
For the automotive “do-it-yourselfer.” Repair, maintenance and specification tables provide critical data on thousands of domestic and imported models of cars and light trucks. This webinar covers how to select a year, make, and model, and navigate repair, maintenance, and recall information.

Closing the Gender Gap: Developing Gender Equitable STEAM Programs (STARnet)
Are you interested in making your library programs more equitable, where all patrons can “see themselves” in your STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) activities?
