Are you upgrading to MS Office 2010?

msoffice2010The Trust is upgrading some of its software, including MS Office to the 2010 version.  This looks and feels very different to what you are probably familiar with but never fear, help is at hand from the library!

We have a set of tutorials which enable you to watch, practice and assess yourself on the new version – whether your interest is in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access or Publisher. Working at your own pace, in the relative peace and quiet of the library, there is help at hand if you need it and you can even enjoy a complementary tea or coffee while you learn.

It’s free and pretty painless – there are no usernames or passwords to memorise.

Please contact us on Ext 1362 if you would like to know more or simply call in the Library and we’ll be happy to get you started.
