State Librarian of Ohio Beverly Cain, Welcomes You
Library staff are expected to adapt very quickly to the rapid changes affecting the profession. These changes include the tremendous growth of new knowledge, the introduction of new technologies, and the changing expectations of library patrons. By participating in continuing education, library staff learn new skills and acquire knowledge to help them meet the challenges of working in a rapidly changing environment.
The State Library of Ohio is proud to partner with WebJunction to provide an array of online continuing education courses for Ohio library staff. Library staff may participate in courses to improve technology skills, earn effective methods of interacting with library patrons, learn the art of library management, and much more. We hope you will find these course offerings to be an asset to you, your library, and the community you serve.
WebJunction Ohio is brought to you by the State Library of Ohio and paid for in-part with federal IMLS LSTA funds.
