Reminder: School Library Survey Webinar this Thursday, February 17

The Library Research Service will be hosting a School Library Survey Webinar this Thursday, February 17, from 3:30 to 4:30 pm. The purpose of the webinar is to get feedback from school librarians about the annual Colorado school library survey—suggestions for improvements, changes, additions, deletions, etc.

To participate in the webinar, you will need an Internet connection for your computer and a separate phone line. Attendees will be able to communicate with each other both on the phone and via text chat.

Step 1: Access the meeting room online:  http://connect.cboces.org/sls/.   Please choose “Enter as a Guest” and type in your name when you log in.

Step 2: Upon entering the meeting room, you will see a pop-up form to Connect My Audio.  You have the option to “Dial-in to the conference,” or, to “Receive a call from the meeting (Dial-out).” If you choose to receive a call, be sure your phone is on the hook so the call can come through!

Note: if your phone line has an extension, please use the Dial-in option.  The call out option is automated and can’t handle an extension.

In advance of the meeting, please run through the connection test: http://connect.cboces.org/common/help/en/support/meeting_test.htm.

Please consider logging in to the meeting 5 – 10 minutes in advance to make sure we can troubleshoot any technical issues, and not take time away from our session to do so.

We encourage you to review the current school library survey prior to the meeting, so that you will be prepared to provide feedback, and to print a copy for use during the meeting so that you won’t have to toggle between windows on your computer. You can access it at http://www.lrs.org/documents/slmc10/survey.pdf.
