Writers can get tips, tricks and strategies for online research at "Search Like a Librarian," the next Field’s End monthly Writers’ Roundtable.

The roundtable is 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 21, at the Bainbridge Public Library.

Jeannie Ream, who has a master’s degree in library science from the University of Washington's Information School, will lead the roundtable. She will cover how to search like a librarian, how to locate information from a variety of online resources and how to discern what’s credible and what’s not. Ream will highlight the best resources and demonstrate searching techniques to help writers make the most of their research time online.

Participants are invited to bring their laptops to follow along using the library’s wireless network.

Ream was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and has provided research assistance and technology support to library users throughout Kitsap County.

The evening includes a question-and-answer period and closes with an opportunity to network with other writers.

Field’s End monthly roundtables are free and open to writers of all levels and interests. No registration is required.

Field’s End, an affiliate of the Bainbridge Public Library Board, offers workshops, classes and an annual conference focusing on the art, craft and profession of writing.
