Dear Librarians,

If you are attending the 2017 Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Conference in Baltimore, Maryland, please join me at the HRAF booth #1054 for an informative tour of HRAF’s award-winning online cross-cultural databases and see what’s new at the Human Relations Area Files!

Today you”ll find me at the HRAF booth until 4:30 p.m. and then again tomorrow, Friday, (24 March) I am in the exhibit hall from 9 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

If you are not attending the ACRL Conference, please pass on this information to others who are and who are interested in learning about the various  services and support materials we offer to users of the eHRAF World Cultures & Archaeology databases.

On another note, final exams are just around the corner, so I thought it would be a good idea to provide extra help for students who are using our online ethnographic and archaeological databases for their final projects and papers. Researchers, faculty, and librarians are also welcome to attend to learn about eHRAF’s truly unique features (e.g., culture collections organized by regional affiliations, subsistence & sample types, etc.)

The next online eHRAF Training session starts later today (Thursday, March 23) at 5:30 p.m. /17:30 (Eastern Daylight Time) and will last about 60 minutes.

The online eHRAF Training will focus on:
– Browse Cultures (taking a closer look at eHRAF’s ethnographic collections)
– Finding information in eHRAF (Basic vs. Advanced Search)
– Navigating and processing results
– Tips and strategies
– Resources and support

To make the eHRAF Training interactive, I welcome questions from attendees. These live sessions are a great opportunity to brush up on the various aspects of eHRAF.

Please share this announcement with faculty, students, and researchers as I hope for a good turnout!
