Database demos, job search tutorials, and staff development, too!

We’ve just uploaded several interesting things onto the site.  PLP is getting ready to negotiate our database subscription offers.  To make a good recommendation for your library, make sure that you participate.  This opportunity closes January 31st, 2012.  Here’s the link: http://www.plpinfo.org/database-trials/.

San Francisco Public Library just shared their video tutorials for job seekers.  These may serve as a good example of something to create for your own library, or you may be able to use them for your patrons.   The videos are in English, Chinese, and Spanish, and cover career-seeking, job sites, and resume creation.

The PLP Annual Staff Development Report is up.  Read it to find out how much they managed to accomplish with this year’s round of successful workshops.
