Andornot was recently involved with two events in association with the University of British Columbia School of Library, Archival and Information Studies.
In early February, Denise Bonin and Kathy Bryce gave our annual introductory training workshop on Inmagic DB/TextWorks organized by the SLA chapter at SLAIS, and last week Peter Tyrrell participated in the SLAIS Colloquium Series with a presentation on "Adventures in web consulting". We also plan to participate in the SLAIS Career Expo on March 20th.
We regularly visit library tech programs and are more than happy to share our experiences as library consultants or as resellers of Inmagic software. Please contact us for more details or check out our website for more information.

March 1st, 2008 (Vancouver) - Saturday morning was an unlikely school day for UBC SLAIS students. Nonetheless over 25 library and archival students got out of bed and made their way to campus to attend Andornot's annual Inmagic DB/TextWorks workshop.
Led by Andornot team members Rex Turgano and Bridget Martin, the 5-hour jam-packed event consisted of an overview Inmagic DB/TextWorks, hands-on training, and an open forum discussion on how to use the software to solve various information management type problems and scenarios. Be sure to read "DB/TextWorks debrief" blog post about the event on the SLA@SLAIS blog.
There were a lot of things to learn in one day, but the eager UBC SLAIS students were able to grip some of the core concepts, features, and most importantly the flexibility and ease-of-use in creating a DB/TextWorks database. At the end of the workshop, Andornot showcased some of the possibilities for publishing a searchable database on the web using WebPublisher PRO.
Our favourite workshop feedback: "WE WANT TO KNOW MORE!"
