American Memory Workshop at SWOSU on April 4

Steve Beleu from the Oklahoma Department of Libraries will conduct a free workshop in the Al Harris Library on April 4, 2006 in the Instruction Room on 2nd floor. The morning session will be from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM. The class will teach you how to access data from the Census Bureau's American Factfinder and American Community Survey web pages. You will also learn about the Census Bureau's homepage and School District Demographics web page. The focus will be on data and maps which feature Oklahoma.

The afternoon workshop (1:00- 4:00 PM - same day) will cover the American Memory website provided by the Library of Congress. The afternoon session will explain three of the most popular sites: Native Americans, Literature, & Music. These will be two very interesting workshops. You don't have to sign up or reserve a computer, but you need to show up early for each session to ensure a place. The photographs in American Memory are truly amazing and unforgettable. There are also thousands of copies of sheet music available free from this website - if you know where to look! If you have any questions regarding the workshop, please contact Dale Evans at 774-7069.
