The description of the event.

A 6-part series, one class every other week, to introduce Montana librarians to ASPeN (Access to Services, Programs and eNetworks).  Register to attend all 6 sessions, or choose only the session(s) you need.  MSL staff team-teach this course, so you can get to meet the full team who are available to help you navigate and successfully utilize ASPeN.  

Each class begins with a demonstration and allows plenty of time for Q&A or guided practice. Classes rarely last the full hour.  Only the demo is recorded and posted to VImeo.  To find the recording, come back to this event page after the event and the url for the meeting will be replaced with a link to the recording.
