Please Note:

This session will be offered via Zoom.

This session will duplicate the live Training sessions offered during the week of June 17. We recommend that you consider attending one of those in-person sessions for the most beneficial training experience.  If you cannot attend in person, keep in mind these suggestions to help you get the most from this training experience:

1. Have your Koha Login and Password ready and log in to the test server prior to the start of the training session

2. Consider using a large browser window or a presentation screen so you are able to see the Bywater trainer and utilize the test server at the same time. This way you can ask questions and test the solution in real time.

3. Find a comfortable, quiet environment so you are able to focus on the training

4. This is a LIVE webinar so please ensure before it starts you have whatever you may need like snacks, beverages, chargers, etc.
