Electronic Enlightenment - Training Session on 4 March

Why not join an online demonstration/training session on Wednesday 4 March at 10.00, to get the most out of Electronic Enlightenment, one of the many databases subscribed to by the Library. 

Electronic Enlightenment is a fascinating online collection of over 67,875 historical letters and documents linking people across Europe, the Americas and Asia, from the early 17th to the mid-19th century.

Over 8,331 historical figures discuss everything from religious tolerance to animal rights, vulcanology to classical archaeology, economic modelling to celebrity culture.

The 40-45 minute training session will be held by Jonathan Wakeford, an OUP trainer. It will look at different search options, features and practical uses of the database, and there will also be an opportunity for you to ask questions.  It is is open to anyone and is free of charge.

You can access the session from anywhere - all you need is a computer with an Internet connection,  WebEx conferencing software and sound.  

Please register here if you would like to attend. You will receive an invitation which contains details of how to log in to the session
