The NNLM NER will be hosting a viewing of the MLA Webinar, Searching with Ease: A Guide to Effective and Efficient Searches

Terry Ann Jankowski, AHIP, FMLA, one of the preeminent educators on expert searching, guides novice and intermediate searchers on how to conduct any search with ease. Participants will learn how to translate search requests into strategies, identify the right steps and tools for the request and themselves, and use their results to refine their strategies.  #mlaExpertSearch

Objectives: At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • translate search requests into effective search strategies using both controlled vocabulary and natural language
  • select a search method appropriate to the search request and their search styles
  • review a search strategy with its results to determine steps to take to improve the search
