Lisa Dennis will cover DIY Resources for Public Library Patrons, provided by TexShare and EBSCO.

You’ve got lots of DIY resources for your library patrons and in this session, we’ll explore them all! From Home Improvement to Hobbies & Crafts and Small Engine Reference Centers, your patrons will have step-by-step repair instructions and craft ideas at their fingertips. Want “how-to” instruction on legal or small business issues? Look no further than Legal Information and Small Business Reference Centers! And finally, speaking of exploring, join us as we tour Explora, the graphical interface for not only your adult patrons, but for the young researcher as well!

Inspire patrons with craft ideas and holiday projects
Find related information for small engine machinery, maintenance and repair
Create a variety of legal documents
