Extend your LibAnswers data with MS Office and gain dynamic insight into your Reference desk reports. Douglas College created a dashboard in Excel to investigate our students’ reference usage over the years. By saving our LibAnswers transactions in a simple database, we used queries to enhance the data with our college’s academic years, terms, other data points which let us see long-term trends in usage. You too can tailor your data to suit your institute’s needs with tools you already have.

Webinar Software

For our sessions, we use Zoom. There is a webinar client required for entering the webinar. It will download automatically when joining the webinar or can be downloaded in advance (Zoom Client for Meetings). For additional help using Zoom, check out our Trouble Shooting Guide.
