Option 1: OCLC WMS Report Designer Training – Are you terrified of running reports in OCLC WMS Analytics? We have the perfect session for you! Join us for a live training session led by HELIN colleagues as we go step by step using the the Report Designer Web Intelligence module. We’ll demonstrate how to run and export some basic reports, how to design less straightforward reports, and show you the pitfalls and random gotchas to look out for when exploring this module.

Option 2: Information Literacy in a Changing Information Landscape – Panel discussion about the role of instruction librarians in educating students in the face of multiple changes and challenges in the world of information. This session was inspired by the HELIN Workshop “Teaching Digital and Information Literacies in a Polarized Time” held virtually in January 2022 by Andrea Baer of Rowan University.
