Since 2015, Softlink’s Training Specialists have conducted a series of free webinars to help Oliver v5 customers in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands refresh their skills and explore some of the more common features of the library management software.
Webinar topics have included Oliver v5 school library stocktakes, procedures for the new school year, the Orbit junior interface and a general core skills refresher.
Over 1,000 school library professionals have benefited from the free webinars so far!
Attendees have responded positively to the webinars with comments including:
“Great to have these webinars, because often we don't know what we don't know!”
"Many thanks for the webinar yesterday, I found it really valuable. It made me look at our missing items and realise that we have a large number of resources not in a collection – I’m glad we picked this up before starting the stocktake. I’ve requested that the other staff here sign up for a session in the coming weeks."
“I think this will really consolidate what I have been learning by just trying things as I go, so thank you. Great and am looking forward to other webinars now.”
“Attended two Webinars and both have been excellent. A great way of providing a wonderful service to libraries (in the outback) who cannot make training sessions in the city due to distance, time and finance”
“Thank you, that was very informative. We wish to borrow your brain!”
Although the webinars were attended as refreshers, new users have also benefitted from the experience:
“We are a new school where Oliver is new to me. My first stocktake will begin soon and this presentation has given me some knowledge of what an Oliver stocktake look like.”
With regular, free webinars on offer, there are plenty of opportunities for you to refresh your skills, provide an introduction to new team members, and make sure you are getting the most out of your Oliver v5 system!
