That's right, folks.
In the span of one hour Mark Pond, Business Reference Librarian for the Spokane Public Library, will showcase three online business databases for which the library pays $20,555 per year. Come in at 7:30 in the morning and you'll leave at 8:30 with nearly $21,000 worth of business resources tucked in your pocket.
Who should attend?
Anyone who can't afford to spend $20,555 on subscription databases but needs high-quality, on-demand, online business information for generating sales leads lists, conducting market research or keeping current on industry trends. Also, if you like donuts and/or coffee, you should attend.
Why should you attend?
We live in the Information Age. No arguing that point. Given that, the question is this: How good are your infosmithing skills? If you wanted to survive and thrive in the Iron Age, you had to know how to bend iron to your will. If you want to survive and thrive in the Information Age, you need to know how to bend information to your will. Come learn.
Isn't all of the content I need available through Google?
Some of it, but certainly not all of it. And the part that isn't freely available online? If you can get to that part, that's your edge over your competition.
What is the cost to attend this training?
Like everything else from the library, the price of admission is already paid.
