USER’S GUIDE TO THE CHICAGO PUBLIC LIBRARY ORIENTATION OFFERS PATRONS A ROADMAP TO LIBRARY SERVICES
In the continuing effort to assist patrons at the Chicago Public Library and provide them with a more productive and enjoyable visit, the Library’s Information Center will present a series of User’s Guide to the Chicago Public Library orientation workshops.
The free, 30-minute workshops will be held on Monday, January 14 at 1 p.m. and Thursday, January 31 at 6 p.m. in the Video Theater, Lower Level, at the Harold Washington Library Center, 400 S. State Street. A question and answer session will follow each workshop.
Performing a website catalog search, identifying resourceful reference databases and finding hidden gems on the Library’s website will become a lot easier and less stressful after attending the User’s Guide to the Chicago Public Library orientation workshops. Patrons can get a better understanding of what the Library offers and how to search for items, as the orientation covers:
- Getting a library card
- Exploring the Harold Washington Library Center
- Navigating the Library’s website
- Finding a book, movie, CD and more
- Using the Library’s databases
