Oliver v5 Group Training is a fantastic professional development opportunity to learn from our expert trainers, develop your Oliver v5 skills, and find new ways to make the most of your library software.

It is also an opportunity to connect with other school library professionals to share ideas, network, and collaborate with the wider school library community.

Softlink runs Group Training sessions throughout the year, Australia-wide, at various host venues. While they represent great value for money, schools can further benefit from a discount by hosting a Group Training session at their school.
