    There's still time! The next free webinar hosted by the Special Library Association Academic & Education Community and ACRL's EBSS Education Committee will occur at 1:30 pm EST on September 10, which features NASA and its educational programs. 

    Like the universe itself, the scope of NASA's free resources can be overwhelming - and always expanding! This presentation will give an overview of how you can connect with key NASA programs designed to serve informal educators. Learn how to bring real-time NASA missions and data into your library, keep up to date on high-profile missions, provide STEM opportunities to all patrons, and more.
