ASERL Friends:

Many of us are contending with the competing forces of expanded online teaching 
demands and reduced collections budgets.  ASERL is collaborating with two of 
our vendor-partners to offer the following webinars next week to demonstrate 
how you can optimize the collections you have already purchased / licensed.  We 
hope you will find these interesting and useful.

"Online learning with primary source collections from Adam Matthew Digital"
Oct 28, 2020 at 10:30am ET / 9:30am Central Time
REGISTER: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/1856136565615067915
In this webinar we will hear how a course on the Civil Rights Movement at the 
University of Central Florida used material from Adam Matthew collections to 
facilitate primary source research and student collaboration in an in-person 
and online environment. This case study will be followed by wider discussion of 
online pedagogy, the support that Adam Matthew offers in this area, and a 
reminder of the current pricing offer open to all ASERL members.
