Distance Education Opportunities: “Connecting with the NER”
“Connecting with the NER” A Distance Education Series: December Programs
Stay up to date professionally without leaving your desk! The National Network of Libraries of Medicine/ New England Region brings you a continuation of our popular distance education series. This ongoing series features hot topics in health sciences librarianship and highlights major updates to National Library of Medicine resources.
Register for one or both sessions. Additional sessions will be announced soon.
Each session is held via teleconference and will have an online component via Adobe Connect. All you need to participate is a phone near a computer with Internet access. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis. If there is more than one interested participant from your library, we encourage you to use a speaker phone to participate together.
We are currently accepting registrations for the first two programs.
