Dear Academic Library Directors,
As you may be aware, many of you met with representatives from Gale recently to work on a plan for improving and getting better use out of the state-icensed Gale databases.
As part of the plan, Gale would like to offer a series of hands-on trainings around the state, each session about 3-4 hours long. We are looking at the time span of late march through early May.
Would your institution be willing to host a session? Is spring break an optimal time? If so, please let me know who I can contact for computer lab availability.
The session we envision would focus on differences in indexing, subject headings and search parsing from Ebsco, as well as other advanced searching techniques needed by researchers.
Thank you in advance for helping us to set up some training like this.
