Kansas Library Database Workshop

On June 14th, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Robert Lindsey will lead a workshop sponsored by the Southeast Kansas Library System. This professional development workshop is designed to inform SEK library employees in how much information is available to them through databases accessed with a Kansas State Library Card. The four databases that will be covered are:
  • InfoTrac with nearly 6,000 magazines and journals in full-text plus business, medical, newspapers and more.
  • Literature Resource Center for information on authors and writings.
  • HeritageQuest for genealogy, has the US Census and 20,000 books on local and family histories.
  • NetLibrary has over 12,000 books online to be read on the computer. A great resource for a small library.

For each database, you will find out:
  • What the database covers.
  • How to access the database, using your "Kansas Library Card".
  • How to navigate and search the database.
  • How to print out or e-mail your search results.
Southeast Kansas librarians may register at the SEKLS web site.
