What can you expect from the Trainers?

1. The Training Team will keep Information Services staff up-to-date. Each week we will:

  • Send an email to all participating staff with details on the new e-Resource, and instructions on what to complete that week
  • Include in this email an attached copy of the e-Resource template for the previous week's assignment, outlining possible steps to take towards answering the last homework question
2. The Training Team will make themselves readily available:
  • Through email: training@bpl.on.ca
  • Through the phone: Amanda, x185 and Melissa, x129
  • Through weekly lunch Q&A sessions in the RNTR where we are available in person, and on the phone (the extension for the RNTR is x159)
