Following on from the successful resource discovery pilot training programme, Jisc is launching a series of training sessions to support institutions in making their digital collections easier to discover.
The training sessions are free and open to all FE and HE staff working within digital libraries, collections and archives. The course is also open to staff working in libraries, museums or art galleries who have collections that can be used for learning, teaching and research.
The training sessions will focus on the use of social media, analytics and a variety of other tools to help digital collections become discoverable to wider audiences online.
