MeL Maven Badge

Six interactive modules tell the story of front line staff solving their patrons’ information needs like solving a Pinterest fail, providing research services to city officials, and helping a student with homework. The Badge is a deep dive into the Top 10 MeL eResources so you know where to go to get what you need. Learners who complete all six modules will earn their MeL Maven Badge!
