About the OCULA Free Webinar Series:
Within such a diverse sector, it can be difficult to keep up to date on all of the issues that arise. In response to the challenges faced by those working in libraries, and in an effort to share knowledge and increase awareness on current topics in academic libraries, we have developed a series of free webinars.
Over the next year, OCULA will be partnering with experts on a variety of topics to offer four free webinars on topics that we think are important to librarians and library staff.
In these webinars, several presenters will come together to share their unique perspectives on a topic with the audience. From exploring core theories to applications in practice, our presenters will share how academic library staff can get involved as well as discuss the challenges that they might encounter.
