Brutus Attends Staff Training Session

This morning Brutus attended an all staff training session. He learned about 2 new genealogy databases--CLIO (a digital library of local histories) and The New England Historical and Genealogical Societies database--as well as a website developed by the University of Michigan hosting digital copies of Michigan local histories and atlases. He also had fun completing a scavenger hunt which will be made available to the public in February. However, he wasn't allowed to share the chocolate prizes since chocolate can make dogs sick. Staff members, as well as Brutus, are looking forward to using some of their new skills with those doing genealogical research.
