Hello!  If you missed the "Free Content for Library Collections" webinar by the College of DuPage Press you may now watch it online at: http://www.dupagepress.com/index.php?id=4106

Webinar Title: Free Content for Library Collections
Speaker: Michael Galloway and John Mark Ockerbloom
Cost: Free to Library Staff of Oregon Libraries

The Internet offers a treasure trove of free resources that can greatly expand the range of information and services that libraries can offer their patrons.  But it's not always easy to find the best information to meet users' needs.  In this program, Michael Galloway, Manager, Digital Collections for ipl2: Information You Can Trust, and John Mark Ockerbloom, editor of The Online Books Page, will give a tour of some of the millions of books, magazines, journals, and informative web sites that can be accessed online for free.  They will discuss how they evaluate and describe online resources to include in their directories, how readers can find what they need in these directories and elsewhere online, and how they can distinguish useful information from unreliable or irrelevant sites.   You'll find out how you can integrate free online resources with your local library offerings in ways that give patrons better service than either online or print alone can provide.   And you'll also learn how your library and your patrons can contribute to this growing corpus of knowledge.

This webinar is 90 minutes in length

This webcast is being made available free of charge to staff from Oregon libraries, paid for by the Oregon State Library with LSTA funds.
