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."
“WebJunction is an invaluable source that I have come to rely on and feel so fortunate to have. Not only does it build my confidence to know there are courses offered directly related to my position within the library now, but it’s my career advancement plan whenever the opportunity arises. Knowing that I can come to WebJunction and look for refresher courses for a new position or sessions to help me implement new ideas in my current profession, is empowering. I treasure the webinars on WebJunction and ... I am a better librarian because of it.
