You're helping your library staff. How can we help you?
Library staff must keep their skills current to face the evolving needs of library users. But managing staff training can be expensive, inconvenient, and difficult to get off the ground. WebJunction works with a number of supporting organizations to provide cost-effective training and staff development programs that are convenient to access and easy to manage.
Libraries use WebJunction to deliver successful training programs:
- "An essential criterion of the program was that it be available statewide, and to accommodate that goal a combination of desktop online sessions and video conferencing was employed. This was necessary because many library staff cannot travel for continuing education. Online tools enabled all interested library staff to participate in any or all of the webinars through either the live sessions or the program archives."
- "By leveraging existing course content and using it with the online facilitated discussions, the trainers were able to create a valuable learning experience for participants without the immense time required to develop new content."
- "We have lots of small public libraries and the librarians that serve them are rarely able to travel for networking and training. We needed a way to begin to connect librarians to online training and learning resources."
