It can be confusing to find the resources you want and learn how to use them—intimidating even. So we’re offering a new service, Niche Academy, that teaches you how to use all of them. Niche Academy offers short video tutorials that you can watch for free and at your convenience. Learn how to:
- Borrow and read eBooks and digital magazines with OverDrive, Libby, Cloud Library and Flipster
- stream music, television shows, documentaries and movies with Freegal, Hoopla and Kanopy
- use library databases like Ancestry.com, Consumer Reports, Select Reads and Legal Forms
- take free online classes with Gale Courses.
Niche Academy also offers videos that explain how to use online tools like Gmail, Goodreads and social media, including Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. All of these video tutorials are available for free. You can watch as many as you like at mentorpl.org/niche.
