Would you like to participate in SCIS training from the comfort of your own desk?
Over three Tuesdays, beginning February 16 and ending March 1, SCIS will be hosting professional learning webinar sessions to teach you how to make the most out of SCIS products and services. Webinars are open to all school library staff, and are a great way to learn more about how SCIS can assist your library’s collection development, with the opportunity to chat with fellow library staff in Australia and New Zealand throughout the session.
Sessions are approximately 45-60 minutes, and we are always happy to answer questions about SCIS products and services at the end of each session. Registration is essential.
Tune into the following webinars to find out how you can use SCIS not only as a resource management tool, but as a form of content curation to direct you and your users to useful, educational resources for the library and the classroom.
