Successful On-Site Research, free webinar by Marian Pierre-Louis now online for a limited time

LogowhiteThe recording of yesterday's webinar, In the Trenches: Successful On-Site Research, by Marian Pierre-Louis, is now available to view in our webinar archives for a limited time. One viewer described the webinar as a "very useful detailed guide to preparation for a trip to a research facility." Another commented, "this webinar is a must for newcomers, however, regardless of how advanced a researcher you are, you will always learn something new."

If you enjoyed the live webinar, you are going to really, really enjoy your 2nd viewing of it in this recording. After the live webinar, Marian re-recorded the first thirty minutes to give you additional on-site research advice, and shortened some of the transportation/food suggestions. If you weren't at the live event - you won't notice a thing - she did a terrific job! Don't miss her 7 pages of syllabus materials on the webinar CD which contain all her on-site research checklists (available in both .pdf and .doc formats).
