The Oregon State Library and Gale are offering a series of free webinars between February and May 2014 designed specifically for Oregon users of the Gale resources available in the Statewide Database Licensing Program (SDLP).

Topics include business and health resources, information about Spanish-language resources, using periodicals databases to support Common Core, and developing library impact stories. The presenter will be Julie Pepera, Customer Education Specialist from Gale who has provided well-received training sessions for Oregon over the last several years.

Looking for programming ideas for your local business community? Want to help parents understand the Common Core standards? With the focus on Oregon users, the sessions in February are particularly appropriate to advertise with your local library users. Your library patrons can register for these sessions on their own, or you may want to consider hosting broadcasts of the sessions at your library.
