Maximize Your Social Current Engagement: Knowledge and Insights Center

November 22 @ 12:30 pm 1:15 pm

Free

Informing your work with relevant and trustworthy research is important—but it isn’t always easy to do. Information overload can be stressful. And exploring emerging data and trends can be time consuming. Luckily, the Social Current Knowledge and Insights Center can help.

Experienced librarians and other Social Current staff and partners with subject matter expertise provide professionals in the nonprofit social services sector with timely and useful information solutions. This includes on-demand, 24/7 access to thousands of online knowledge and resource assets, full-text articles, journals and publications, and real-world policies and procedures from social services organizations. Engaged organizations can also consult directly with librarians who provide reference services, such as research requests, subject compilations, and coaching to use information resources more effectively.

Join the Knowledge and Insights Center team for this session. They’ll provide an overview of services, instructions for using the online resources portal, and tips and tricks that make information searches and usage easier.
