Spring Training:
Limited Live Stream Opportunity Added!
Live Stream Pilot Project to Stream Select Sessions
In an effort to offer access to live training as an accommodation for those not able to attend in-person due to the mask requirement, HSLC will convene a pilot project by live streaming two of the sessions at the March 30 training.

The sessions to be live streamed will be:
  • Access PA and Interlibrary Loan: Putting it all together with SHAREit (9 AM – 11:45 AM)
  • POWER Library, Resource Accessibility, and the School Library: How POWER Library Can Help Bridge the Gap (1:30 PM – 3:45 PM)
We do not plan to make recordings available for viewing later. We apologize in advance if we are not streaming your preferred sessions, but this is our first attempt to live stream. We will evaluate the experience for all parties, and determine if it is feasible for future opportunities.

To register for the live stream, select the "Register for the Live Stream" link below. Looking for the full Spring Training agenda and registration? Find it here!
