EBSCOhost training at the Verkhovna Rada

PCV Karin N. Jones conducts training at the Verkhovna Rada

On 16, 17 and 20 June, 2011, Peace Corps Volunteer Karin N. Jones conducted training on EBSCOhost at the Verkhovna Rada  for deputies of Ukraine, their assistants, members of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and the staff of the secretariats of parliamentary committees to improve their practical skills and effective use of EBSCOhost.

Access to EBSCOhost is provided to the Verkhovna Rada by USAID, and training was organized through the Parliamentary Development Program II. Introductory trainings had been conducted in early 2011, when the Verkhovna Rada had first gained access to the tool, but in this training participants learned in more detail how to work in EBSCOhost, including how to conduct basic and advanced searches, how to sort and limit results, choosing databases, setting up personal accounts, setting up alerts, and more.

Did you know that EBSCOhost is also available at all Window on America Centers in Ukraine? If you need more information on how to access EBSCOhost, contact your local Window on America Center. Ms. Jones is also available to conduct trainings on using the tool, and plans to conduct and record an online training, which will be made available to all interested parties.

    It would be great to organize a seminar on the topic for librarians and users in our library too.
