Webinars on library resources

Listed here are webinars offered by database, ejournal, ebook, and other library resource companies (as opposed to ones we offer ourselves). Anyone can sign up for these webinars and view them at your own desktop. (You'll want to verify you have the necessary software to view and participate in the webinar.) Some provide the webinar audio through your computer's speakers of headphones, other require you to call into a phoneline.
