[Libs-Or] L-net Training in Bend

Introductory training on L-net, Oregon's Statewide Virtual Reference
Service, is scheduled for:

Friday March 11, 9:00 - 4:00
Deschutes Public Library
601 N.W. Wall Street
Bend, OR 97701

The training is for librarians who plan to take shifts staffing L-net's
chat, texting, and e-mail reference service.  Librarians will receive
training on L-net's software, and instruction on techniques for
communicating effectively online with patrons and providing reference
services online.

There are two ways to get involved with staffing L-net:

1 - Partner libraries: Reference staff at Oregon libraries may staff the
service as partner libraries.  Librarians at partner libraries staff the
service at their libraries.

2 - Volunteers: If you have reference experience, you may apply to be a
volunteer.  Volunteers typically staff the service from home computers.  If
you would like to participate in the volunteer program, contact me for
information about how to apply to be a volunteer.

The training is free, but space is limited and advance registration is
required.  If you would like to attend, contact me and let me know if you
would like to staff L-net at a partner library or as a volunteer.

Registration for this training will close on Monday, March 7.

If you're interested in the training, but unable to attend on this date,
please contact me.  I'm continuing to schedule additional trainings around
the state.
