ProQuest training needs
Following the successful training webinars at the start of 2019, ProQuest have offered to run another series of webinars based on your training needs. Is there an aspect of Ebook Central that you would like more training on? Perhaps you would like additional support on navigating LibCentral? If you have any training requirements, do get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org outlining your training needs. We will pass this on to ProQuest who will then arrange a new series of webinars.
Feature of the month
This month’s feature of the month focuses on the fantastic ProQuest LibGuide, which can be accessed here. This LibGuide features support on lesser known features such as how to create highlights, notes and bookmarks; information on how to fully utilise the Bookshelf function, and brilliant promotional materials for you to download and print. The site also contains links to tutorial support videos on YouTube and LibCentral training. We think it is a fantastic tool to help you make the most of Ebook Central, and is especially useful as an introduction for new colleagues.
