WoK Intensive Update Training in April– A chance to win an iPod Shuffle

The ISI Web of Knowledge Service for UK Education now features quarterly updates and enhancements with several new features made available in each of these quarterly upgrades. In order to support this MIMAS and Thomson Scientific are offering a series of FREE 'Intensive Update' training sessions for library and support staff in order to explore these enhancements and introduce future developments. We are pleased to announce that attendees on each of these dates will be entered into a free draw to win and iPod shuffle. There are 5 iPod shuffles up for grabs and attendees on each of the 5 dates will be entered into one of the 5 prize draws.
