Featured eResources of the Month


Back to learning for all ages!

As students head back to school, we realize the need for continued learning ourselves. The State Library offers many opportunities to achieve electronic resources mastery.

Julie Erickson (email), and Jane Healy (email), specialize in conducting electronic resources professional development sessions for libraries and schools at no charge to your institution. Contact them with any electronic resources questions. Look for them as presenters at education, library and technology conferences, too.

If you prefer to learn on your own, take webinars provided by vendors. Staff, patrons and students are welcome to register and participate. See the event calendar on the State Library website for dates and times.

More support materials are only a few clicks away. To find them, click Online Resources, choose a category and then click the lowercase i in the blue box icon icon next to the resource description. You will find “SDSL Libraries’ Guides” for a quick refresher or patron guide, as well as vendor-created videos and documents.

Stay current by signing up for the appropriate State Library listservs.

Keep learning, and you’ll be prepared to help your patrons move to the head of the class.
