Join Sharon Rothman for an information session about recent Foundation Directory Online changes and a discussion of advanced search techniques.  The Foundation Center Online offers an extraordinary database with in-depth profiles of grantmakers. This is a major resource for GPLH members. Our ability to navigate through this resource effectively and efficiently is critical to our work.   


Sharon Rothman has served as the Supervisor of the Foundation Information Network (FIN) at the White Plains Library for several years. Some new and exciting changes to Foundation Directory Online Professional will take place in the near future. Ms. Rothman will share information about these changes and will offer help in navigating through the new version. This version has a whole new interface resulting in the delivery of more data. After a demonstration of the FDO’s advanced search techniques, there will be a Q & A.
