Discus Onsite Trainings on Oct. 2 and 3


Do you prefer face-to-face classroom training experiences rather than online learning?  If your answer is yes, be sure to take a look at this upcoming opportunity for free onsite Discus training at two locations in South Carolina.  
The session is titled Business & Health Reference: Answer It with Discus!  The hands-on instruction will focus on the EBSCO databases, including:
  • Business Source Premier
  • Small Business Reference Center
  • Health Source: Consumer Edition
  • Health Source: Nursing/Academic Edition
  • Consumer Health Complete

EBSCOhost, the powerful and effective way to search many databases at once, will also be included. 


Select your preferred date below to reach the quick and easy registration page.

Pamela Erickson, our great EBSCO representative, will deliver the instruction.  Reserve your seat today and plan to attend!

Recorded Training at YOUR Convenience! 


Have you heard?  Discus has recordings in the training archives, lasting from just a few minutes to a full hour.  They're available on your schedule, whatever that may be.  These on-demand recordings may be just the ticket to boost your knowledge of Discus resources.
Are there recordings missing from the archives that you think are needed?  We're always open to your suggestions.   


Dear Discus... 


We love hearing from you, so please contact us at anytime.  Access issues, database content questions, program recommendations, training concerns, and more are all welcomed via phone or email.
