Through readings, assignments and discussions, this four-week online course will guide you through a variety of government websites. You'll learn to:
- Identify both subject-specific and user-specific government sites
- Locate statistics on your community's demographics and needs
- Evaluate government sources as complements to your library's subscription databases
- Incorporate government sources into your library's catalog and website
For a course project, you will create a topical resources guide for a specific group of library users.
Cost: $75 for those in the California library community and Infopeople Partners, $150 for all others.
