What participants need to know/bring:

•Participants must have a web-based email account (Yahoo, Gmail, AOL, etc) and know how to access it from the library. If not, perhaps a librarian can help set them set one up.

•Bring a flash drive to Section B if they would like to learn how to use them.

•Bring their library cards (if they have one) with them to class.

The training is an element of the State Library’s BTOP Project, “New Jersey Libraries – Anchor Institutions as Instruments of Recovery,” funded through the National Telecommunications and Information Administration American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
