Applied Microsoft Excel For Librarians

Microsoft Excel is a powerful and versatile "Swiss army knife" for handing just about anything - from complex budgets and charts, to text-based data .  You can even use it as a plain old calculator.  This webinar explores some of the advanced features Excel has to offer and places them within the context of performing library related tasks.  The goals of this webinar are to (1) Provide an overview of some of the advanced tools Excel offers librarians, (2) Provide resources for further learning, and (3) To encourage participants to think creatively and holistically about harnessing Excel’s toolset within the library.
