SCRLC is delighted to announce that a hands-on, half-day NOVELNY workshop will be presented on Thursday, July 23, at the TST BOCES, Ithaca, NY. NOVELNY is an online library of literally hundreds of magazines, newspapers, maps, charts, research and reference books that are available to every New Yorker, free of charge. The challenge is not how to search, but how to navigate these ever expanding value added resources. Where will you find useful, relevant information to support your users? Priority will be given to school library staff, but these sessions are open to all regional library workers; no approval or authorization is required to attend. Full information and registration details appear at the bottom of this message.
Coming to Ithaca for the session? You, your family, or friends may want to hike waterfall, swim in the lake, try an ethnic food restaurant, or take in a concert or play. To see what’s happening in Ithaca, please go to http://www.visitithaca.com and http://www.ithacaevents.com
