The Resource Sharing Alliance invites all RSA school librarians to attend the Back to School Workshop on Wednesday, August 8, 2018, 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 Wednesday, August 8, 2018 RSA Back to School Workshop will be available closer to the workshop.

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.

For the agenda, please see the link posted here closer to the 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.

Please feel free to bring with you to the workshop your laptop that has WorkFlows installed on it. 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.

If your library is a Full Online RSA member, you are welcome to bring your library-owned iPad or Android tablet that has the MobileCirc app installed on it. Due to access restrictions, RSA staff will only activate MobileCirc on library-owned tablets, not personal tablets, and MobileCirc can only be used by Full Online RSA members, not Basic or Union List RSA members. With MobileCirc, you can check out, discharge, and do inventory using your tablet. To download the MobileCirc app, search for MobileCirc in the Apple App Store or in Google Play. RSA staff will activate the MobileCirc app on your tablet on the day of the workshop. Please note you must install the MobileCirc app on your tablet PRIOR to the workshop. RSA staff will not provide MobileCirc installation assistance during the workshop.

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

RSA is unable to partner with an organization approved by the Illinois State Board of Education to grant Professional Development Hours (PDHs) to those who would like to receive credit for their participation in the RSA Back to School Workshop.

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