Professionally, March was a great month. I sat in on my first Nassau County Library Association/Academic and Special Libraries Division meeting, had the opportunity to teach another information literacy instruction session, and I attended two workshops.
The first workshop was an in-house introduction to Springshare’s LibGuides. I had already published a guide (and started two others) before attending the session, but I’m still glad that I went: I finally learned how to manipulate the template’s default column structure!
The second workshop, hosted by LILRC and H.W. Wilson Product Manager Daniel Firrincilli, was a hands-on training session for WilsonWeb’s OmniFile Full Text Select. I’m always using the Wilson databases with education and library science students, so it was nice to learn that H.W. Wilson provides a ton of free, Web-based training resources to keep librarians up-to-date on new features and enhancements.
There’s only one more item to cross off my to-do list before the end of March and that’s finishing up a social media profile for the next issue of the Metropolitan Archivist. MS Word, here I come.
