NNLM Webinar: Ransomware Attacks - What Medical Librarians Need to Know


Considering recent events and the fact that our IT Departments are locking down networks (I know they need to be cautious) to the point where I've been unable to receive a few Docline articles as pdfs, this looks like a timely and important session!
