    MLA webinar: Basic Statistics for Research Design - Registration OPEN
    The Professional Development Committee has received funding from the NN/LM GMR to host the MLA webinar Basic Statistics for Research Design on March 25, 2020 from 2:00 - 3:30pm.
    "If you want to do research or assessment and are confused by statistics, this webinar is for you. You will gain an overview of five common statistical tests and practical guidance on choosing which to apply when. This practical approach targets key basics to keep in mind when choosing a test to answer a research or assessment question."

    Registration: To register, please complete the online registration form to view the recording (good 180 days past March 25th). If you have any trouble accessing the form, please email me at turnerja1@udmercy.edu and I’ll get you registered.

     As with the previous MLA webinars, we received GMR funding for a license that includes 25 MLA access codes that allow individuals to log-in to their MEDLIB-ED account, watch the live webinar or recording, complete the evaluation, and claim CE certificates.

     As a result, access codes will be provided on a first come, first served basis to the first 25 member registrants. If multiple registrants from the same institution register, you may be asked to pair up to view the webinar at your site. As this is a benefit to MDMLG membership, MDMLG will receive CE priority. If there are spots still open, registration for MHSLA will open March 13th.  

    If you have any questions, please contact:

    Jill Turner, BSN, MLIS
    Associate Librarian
    University of Detroit Mercy
    School of Dentistry
    2700 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd
