Are you interested in learning more about ARTstor? User Services is now scheduling training for Spring 2007. We offer the following many training options, all free of charge. Please contact us at userservices@artstor.org to learn about which option is best for you.

Intensive onsite training
ARTstor User Services will visit your campus to provide intensive train-the-trainer sessions for library staff as well as demonstrations and training for faculty and graduate students. A minimum of thirty attendees or representatives from at least four different institutions is required. We recommend that you schedule onsite training at least six weeks in advance. Availability is limited, so please contact us as soon as possible to schedule a visit for Spring 2007.

Customized online training
For groups of librarians and/or faculty, we provide online training through WebEx, an online interactive classroom tool. [artstor.webex.com] All that is required is a computer with Internet access, a speaker phone, and a projector. We will work with you to create single or multiple sessions for your institution. Please contact us to learn more and to schedule a session.
