All pre-conference sessions are limited to 12 participants. This is determined by the number of available workstations and how many participants the Keystone trainers can support.
KLAS Scavenger Hunt - How well do you know KLAS? Your guided-practice worksheet will present scenarios that will challenge you to undertake various tasks, and independently explore parts of KLAS you may be less familiar with. Take it slow and ask questions of the Keystone Staff as you get stuck, or compete for bragging rights and a prize against your fellow power-users as you find the hidden corners and functionality of KLAS.
Effective Search Strategies in KLAS - There are a lot of ways to find records in KLAS, including one that staff tends to overlook: the WebOPAC. Which tool and what search strategy is the best way to find the info you need quickly and efficiently? Compare methods and learn a new approach to searching for KLAS records. Your Keystone trainers will introduce you to each search method in KLAS and then guide you through practice exercises.
