The MegaResource School Librarian Workshop series began in 1999 as a series of workshop sessions, developed and presented by Mississippi State University Libraries, for school librarians throughout the state of Mississippi. Designed to cover topics related to technology, instruction, and online databases, these workshops continue to serve as a major outreach effort to the K-12 community. We continue to develop these workshops and welcome suggestions for future sessions!
