Announcing Info Sheets & Training Survey

This spring, outreach librarian Gail Murray and training librarian Kara Ripley were busy spreading the word about BadgerLink by attending and presenting at many conferences. The feedback that we received indicated a need for more short and easy-to-digest training materials for educators, librarians, and the general public, so that they can more easily teach and use our resources.

In response to this need, we put together what we’re calling “Info Sheets” which give a quick overview of the navigation of each resource and also provide information about full-text availability, how to access a permalink, if there is an automatic citation feature, and copyright information for the resource.

The Info Sheets are now live on the BadgerLink website. You can find the Info Sheets on theTraining page and on each applicable More Information page (for example, the Access NewspaperARCHIVE More Information page which you can get to by clicking on the link on the list of resources; see image below).
On each Find Resources page, click on the link in the table under "Description & More Information"

Ultimately, we want to be sure BadgerLink’s training materials help you!


Please take this short survey to let us know what you think of some of our training changes.
