Training Workshops and Open Labs
Winter 2012

A series of one-hour OmniUpdate Workshops (see topic titles below) is being offered this winter. Attend all sessions or only those of interest depending on your level of expertise.

  • To reserve a seat, e-mail the Web Team at at least 24 hours before the scheduled workshop. NOTE: You may drop in for a workshop on a first-come, first-seated basis but seating priority will be given to those who have signed up. But please be on time!

  • You must already have an OmniUpdate account and test/know that it is active before you participate in a workshop.  If needed, e-mail the Web Team at at least a day before the workshop to confirm your account.
