ABC's of Working with Children: An Online Course
Jan 7, 2003
The School of Library and Information Studies of The University of Wisconsin at Madison offered an online course. Although geared "for those working in small-to-medium sized public libraries," most librarians would probably benefit from a course such as this. The course covered the range of duties for those working with children.

Interviewing Techniques
Sept 25, 2002
Steven Saint, business reporter with The Gazette in Colorado Springs, CO, gave a one-session seminar tonight entitled "Interviewing Techniques." The 1-1/2 hour class focused on how to interview sources to get the most out of the lnterview. The class was fast-paced and full of information. In his easy going manner, Saint engaged class participants and yet, true to the content he was teaching, he did not allow the instruction/conversations to meander off topic. Saint's classes are useful, short and to the point. They're priced well within the budget of all aspiring writers. Call 719-636-0190 for information on upcoming classes.
