The next three GOLD Workshops (Ruby Certificate) being offered by Milne Library staff begin with MS Access 2007 Level II: Design, Create and Use Queries, taught by Steve Dresbach on Monday, March 22 from 2-3 p.m. in South 328. This latest offering in Steve’s MS Office series will focus on the design and creation of queries (questions) that enable users to select specific information from tables created in MS Access, a database application for entering, storing, retrieving and print data related to a particular topic or purpose.
Next up is Researching Music, a workshop designed to explore the scores, recordings, databases, literature about music and much more that lie within Milne Library’s music collection. Do you know where to find them or how to use them? What is RILM or Naxos? Learn the “secrets” of advanced searching techniques, how music resources are organized, and how to easily locate and access them within Milne and beyond. The workshop will be held in Milne 208 on Tuesday, March 23, from 2-3 p.m.
In today’s world, the Internet is the information tool used most often, yet students frequently complain about not finding reliable, information-rich websites despite hours of searching. Librarian Sue Ann Brainard will show students how to find “hidden” web pages, and become skeptical investigators and sophisticated searchers, in her Quickly Finding Quality Information on the Web workshop, on Wednesday, March 24, from 2-3 p.m. in Milne 109. (This workshop was previously called C.S.I.: Critically Searching the Internet.)
