Webinar Description 

Thinking about how to most effectively help people learn to use e-readers? According to the recent Pew Research Center report, Libraries, patrons, and e-books, many libraries offer at least some form of instruction on e-readers and e-books for patrons. Those include in-person classes, drop-in labs, printed tutorials or FAQs, and online tutorials. The first Edge Benchmark suggests that libraries provide monthly structured and scheduled digital literacy training.

Keeping up with the changing landscape can feel overwhelming for instructors. How are library instructors successfully navigating this sea of change? View this session to hear the instructor perspective on keeping up and helping others.
