The Resource Sharing Alliance invites all RSA school librarians to attend the Back to School Workshop on Wednesday, August 6, 2014, beginning at 9:00 am and ending at 3:00 pm. This workshop will be held in-person at the RAILS East Peoria Service Center, 600 High Point Lane in East Peoria.

Attendees may attend the whole workshop or a portion of it. Please register here on L2 if you plan to attend.

The agenda for the August 6, 2014 RSA Back to School Workshop is posted at http://alsrsa.org/client/search/asset/4362

The purpose of the Back to School Workshop is to discuss RSA topics that are relevant to school libraries: circulation, cataloging, reports, system administration, eRead Illinois, OCLC, and more! Any school library staff member who would like a “refresher” on RSA operations is encouraged to attend this workshop. Please note RSA staff will not provide in-depth training during the RSA Back to School Workshop.

In addition to the topics listed on the agenda, there will be time to network with fellow school librarians and ask questions of RSA staff. Workshop attendees will enjoy complimentary snacks and lunch provided by RSA.

Feel free to bring your laptop that has WorkFlows installed on it. (Please note you must install the most up-to-date version of the WorkFlows software on your laptop PRIOR to the workshop. RSA staff will not be able to provide WorkFlows installation assistance on the day of the workshop).

Print copies of the workshop packets will be available for those who attend this workshop.

Continuing professional development units (CPDUs) will be available to those who would like to receive credit for their participation in the Back to School Workshop. Workshop attendees will complete the CPDU paperwork at the end of the workshop on August 6th.

We hope you can join us for this year's Back to School Workshop!
