A webinar is an online presentation that is conducted live (in real-time).
Library webinars have the following attributes:
Attendees are typically asked to type in the chatbox if they can hear the presenter during the soundcheck before the session begins.
We show you how to dial into the meeting room if your speakers aren't working properly, mute your microphone, and access the chat features.
Sessions may involve a presentation created in Google Slides, a screen share from the librarian's computer, or a combination of the two.
All sessions are recorded. The audio, presentation, and chatbox correspondence are all preserved as part of the recording.
Attendees can ask questions through the chatbox during a session, but the presenter may miss questions during a screen share. Attendees are given an opportunity to ask questions through the chat box at the end of the presentation, and the presenter reviews and addresses chat questions posted there throughout the session.
Check your inbox for a follow-up email the day after the session takes place. This email will include a link to the recording and a link to a survey about the session. If you do not have this email within two business days after the session, please also check your spam folder. All registered attendees receive this information, even if you couldn't attend the live session.
