Gale Database Training

Gale Database PD opportunities

Woodbury librarian, Lori Schwartz, is offering two sessions for teachers to learn how to leverage the content in our premier databases.  While she will not cover all of the ones we subscribe to:

  • Biography in Context
  • Opposing Viewpoints (pro/con)
  • US/World History 
  • Science in Context

You will still walk away with search strategies that can be applied to anyone of these products.  The workshop will also cover Google Classroom integration and how to access the app.  Learn more and register for one of the two sessions in MLP.
