Florida Electronic Library Onsite Training Update

This quarter I've been traveling around the NEFLIN region teaching "Florida Electronic Library: Overview of Components" to our public library system members and last week I presented my final class. The photos at the right and below were taken a few weeks ago at the Suwannee River Regional Library System in Live Oak.

It has been my pleasure to bring this training onsite to libraries and share the wealth of information available through the FEL. Over 250 staff attended the training and feedback has been very positive.

As part 2 of this project, Gale trainer Julie Pepera is doing onsite classes presenting "Gale's PowerSearch", going into the Gale Databases indepthly and giving marketing and outreach tips as well.

NEFLIN received an LSTA grant to provide training on the Florida Electronic Library to our members in public libraries. The FEL is administered by the State Library & Archives of Florida and funded by an LSTA grant.
