Ready, Set, Reference!

Are you stuck in the Google grind? Has a patron ever asked you to, "Just type this into Google?" Information is on-demand and at nearly all our fingertips with smart phones and search engines, but what makes libraries special is the quality of information they provide.
 

Learn about still useful print resources as well as handy websites to build your arsenal of answers without relying on Google, Siri, or Alexa. This webinar will help you identify credible online information and give you the tools to be ready for any reference question.
