RI Teacherfest 2017

On August 8th AskRI had the pleasure of presenting at RI Teacherfest 2017. Our presentation, Ebsco Deep Dive, provided an under the hood guide to some easy-to-miss, but incredibly helpful, features found in Ebsco databases. Weren’t able to make our presentation or Teacherfest? No problem. Download a pdf of our talk here, or view the presentation via the embed below.

Thanks again to Teacherfest for having us and allowing us promote all of the free resources AskRI makes available.
