The For Library Staff page on the BadgerLink website offers key materials and documents to support you in accessing, sharing, and learning about BadgerLink resources. The next few weeks of Bulletin posts will highlight each section of the page so you know what is there and how to use it to your advantage. Previous posts in the series include Getting Started, Resource Guides, and Marketing the Resources.

Asynchronous Training Materials

Info sheets are informational handouts on resources, often times including a screenshot(s) of the home page or basic search. Tips and tricks are usually pointed out. Info sheets can be downloaded, printed, or linked to from library websites.
