In our continuing efforts to enhance YBP's and Baker & Taylor's service to customers, we are pleased to offer webinars. Using web and audio conferencing software, YBP can deliver interactive demonstrations to your desktop, led by our Sales and Customer Service staff. Sessions can be structured for broad appeal or tailored to a specific library's circumstances. Some sessions will be scheduled and advertised in advance, and custom programs will be scheduled as needed; but all sessions are FREE!
