BCR (Bibliographical Center for Research)
At the ARSL conference in Gatlinburg, I learned that a lot of ARSL members aren’t aware that BCR offers semi-regular free webinars on Fridays covering a wide range of library topics. Several people I talked to expressed interest, so I thought I’d give a quick mention of it on the list. You can always access a list of all scheduled Free Friday Forums (or FFFs or F3s as I like to call them) here:
I’ll be hosting a 3-part “drive by” series of these early next year that I think might be of particular interest to this group. It’s called Hot Tools for Tough Times and will focus on a selection of cool and cheap or free tech tools that can help you and your patrons weather the current economic storm just a little bit better. I developed it with small and rural libraries in mind. As an added bonus, Kieran Hixon, who presents regularly at ARSL, will be co-presenting with me on Part 2!
Again, these are totally free, but they do require registration and space is limited. Descriptions for the three I’ll be doing in January/February are below my signature. If anyone has any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me directly. Recommendations for other F3s are always welcome, too!
If you’re on Facebook, become a fan of BCR to be notified of further training opportunities.
