Our version of Niche Academy, called SELCO Academy, launches today! SELCO Academy Tutorials provides in-catalog tutorials for electronic databases for your patrons. It is embedded in Enterprise on your library website. You no longer need to be the expert in how to download books, use Chilton’s or even how to use Twitter; simply direct your patron to the tutorial, which they can view in your library or at home.
SELCO Academy provides tutorials not only for electronic resources provided by SELCO and ELM, but also for some social media.
No action is required on the part of libraries. You will see a teal tab labeled “Tutorials” on the right side of each library’s home page. Library staff or patrons will simply click on the tab to open a menu of video tutorials on various databases and social media platforms. Some databases require a library card to login from home.
We will continue to add tutorials as they are created, and staff training will eventually be available through SELCO Academy as well.
If you have an idea or suggestion for a tutorial, please feel free to contact Pam O’Hara firstname.lastname@example.org.
