MLA Instructor-Led Blended Courses in Expert Searching

Expert Searchers know they are never done developing and extending their expertise. MLA has brought together four popular search experts to offer three courses that will enable you to take your searching skills to new heights!

The courses are expanded versions of face-to-face courses planned for MLA20. . . at lower cost and greater length than the originals.

  • The courses offer a small class experience
  • Seats are limited (20 students maximum)
  • Two live sessions plus readings, assignments, and discussions outside of the sessions
  • All live session times are 11:00 AM-1:30 PM ET

  • Audience: These courses are for advanced searchers. Participants should have basic knowledge of databases (Boolean operators, thesaurus (MeSH) terms and syntax, and experience searching databases such as MEDLINE / PubMed.

Each course stands alone. Together, they constitute a powerful course of study in advanced searching.
