SEAside Webinar– June 11, 2014 – Showcasing Your Value: Beyond Training Database Searching

Posted by on May 28th, 2014 Posted in: All Posts


Welcome to SEAside Webinars! SEAside is a new alternate webinar series sponsored by the SE/A to promote educational opportunities that occur infrequently and are in addition to the Beyond the SEA webinar series.

This webinar, sponsored by SE/A’s Hospital Librarians Program Activity Committee (HLPAC), is the first in a series of occasional educational sessions designed for hospital librarians, but anyone is welcome to attend. The intent of the HLPAC sponsored webinars is to empower hospital librarians to act and think beyond the physical confines of a traditional library.

Jan’s story is an inspiration to other librarians to look past database searching to draw attention to the library and expertise of librarians.
