Hello Search Educators:
Welcome back to the school year!
We are kicking off the new year with some very exciting webinars,
featuring K-20 educators from outside of Google who are undertaking
compelling work in the field. Our September webinar is outlined here,
and you can read about upcoming speakers and topics at the bottom of
Marketing: Librarians as web search experts
Description of course:
Librarians at Grand Valley State University offered a workshop to
faculty called “Using Google Like a Librarian.” The deceptively simple
idea of teaching faculty how to Google resulted in some of the most
popular workshops the library has ever offered. Presenters will share
their workshop content, talk about why it is so important for all
librarians to teach their user groups about Google, and will leave
time for discussion among participants.
Presenters: Mary K. O’Kelly and Colleen Lyon.
Time: September 13, 2011—11 am (Pacific)
