Technology: eResource Appointments

What are eResource appointments?

The goal of eResource appointments are to engage, empower and expose you to the free digital resources available at the library so that you can improve your digital literacy skills enough to teach yourself. Coaches are here to guide you through the process of establishing your goals, conducting a self-assessment and recommending a path to reach those goals.

What topics will a coaching session cover?

Coaching covers the basic skills necessary for you to become a self-directed learner, so that you can learn more advanced topics through one of the library’s many excellent online learning programs.

Topics include Signing Up for Email · Email Basics · Downloading Library eBooks · Using the Library’s Online Resources

Note: This program will focus on helping patrons with Library related products and establishing an email address. You can’t really use the digital world, including many library apps, without an email address.  Email opens the door to digital literacy.

 

How Do I Set Up An Appointment?

If you’d like to set up an eResource appointment, please speak with a Librarian at the 2nd floor Adult Information Desk to determine if you fit into the criteria.  If you don’t meet the criteria for an appointment, the GPL Librarians have created self directed learning guides for patrons who have skills above the basic level. These can be found at the 2nd floor information desk.
