UConn ECE LMS Training

Wednesday, May 24, 2017
8:30am – 2:45pm

Storrs Campus
Rowe 122

Conn ECE believes that accomplished library media specialists are leaders who forge greater opportunities for learners. They work in partnership with instructors to provide students access to research materials and reinforce the importance of information literacy in daily life. They can also serve as leaders in instruction, assisting instructors with curriculum development. With access to millions of records at the University of Connecticut, it is important that affiliate library media specialists can utilize materials and utilize university resources effectively. For that reason, UConn ECE library media specialists are invited to the Storrs campus for a training on how to navigate the resources. All participants are asked to bring a laptop.

This year, you are also invited to bring one UConn ECE instructor from your school to attend alongside you. It’s an opportunity for you both to work on your library skills and to bring that knowledge back to the students. You must register this person at the time of your registration (Instructor Guest).

The 2017 training will take place Wednesday, May 24, 2017, 8:30am to 2:45pm. Space is limited to 45 persons, including guests.
