Digital Books Webinar

On January 4, 2012, I will be participating in a live Webinar with Geoff Rasmussen of Millenia's Legacy Family Tree. Here is the description of the content of the Webinar:
Digital Books and Sites for Genealogists. Learn how to take advantage of the online explosion of digitized books for genealogy. You will learn about sources for digitized books including the Internet Archive, Google Books, WorldCat, Library of Congress, and More. Tens of thousands of these digitized books are local and family histories, some of which have had limited or no distribution previously. There are sites, such as the Family History Archive that have thousands of ree genealogy-related books and are virtually unknown. Other well-known sites like Google Books contain a wealth of past issues of prominent genealogical publications such as the Ancestry Magazine and the Journal of American Ancestry.
The Webinar will be at the following times:

2:00 PM Eastern (U.S.)
1:00 PM Central
12:00 PM Mountain
11:00 AM Pacific
7:00 PM GMT

I am particularly enthusiastic about this topic and I am looking forward to the presentation. I understand that more than a 1000 people have already registered, so if you are even thinking about attending I would suggest registering as soon as possible.
