Part II (May 14): This workshop will compliment and extend the skills gained from the core “Information Sources & Services” course. Using LIS resources, Diving Deeper will engage with the Library Bill of Rights, the Patriot Act, patron privacy issues, tiered-reference strategies, and models for data collection/statistics.
