Welcome to course launch day!
My free course, You and Your Library is now available.
How do you get access?
Sign up (for free) and get access to all the material. The course is hosted on Teachable.com, but you can download the PDFs and read them anywhere you like.
What’s in it?
This course is offered because I run into a lot of people who don’t know how libraries work, or all the things they can do
- Different kinds of libraries and what they offer
- How to learn more about library services.
- How to find materials in libraries (and on library shelves)
- How to explore a collection and find new things.
- Useful library services you may not be aware of
- Ways to get access to databases and books at other libraries.
- A troubleshooting guide to help with some situations people run into.
- Finding public libraries near you.
The course is divided into 5 parts with some supplemental material, and covers both Dewey and Library of Congress shelf numbers (what they mean and how to use them.)
Just want announcements of courses and other materials (not this chatty newsletter?). I have a list for that now too. The announcement list will be very low traffic, just when I have something new.
Sign up for both or either (but I hope at least one of them!)
Coming in the near future
People of the Library : a Pagan-focused and Pagan-friendly guide to library services.
Some of the same topics as You and Your Library but with additional material for common Pagan research needs like useful databases to learn more about, Pagan-specific subject headings, and much more. Sign up for at least one of my newsletters to find out about it when it launches.
This course will cost $10 at launch.
Want to keep up to date?
I have a mailing list for announcements about new courses or other materials I release. Messages here are brief and to the point.
I have a website for my research help and consulting services, Seek Knowledge, Find Wisdom.
And if you’re the sort of person who likes a chattier regular newsletter (every other week) with links, neat things I found online, research tips, and a few things of beauty, I have one of those too.
Use the contact form on my website and I’ll be glad to help with your questions.
