OH Learning

Training and Professional Development  experiences are vital for all library staff in order for libraries to deliver the very best patron centered services. WebJunction Ohio includes many opportunities for staff to learn and grow within an online community. By working in collaboration with other library organizations, the State Library of Ohio provides a variety of training and development resources through WebJunction Ohio.

There are two aspects of training and professional development for librarians- training librarians to assist patrons and training librarians to be better librarians.  This page provides information pertaining to both aspects of library training. 

If you provide training (either for patrons or your staff) and would like to receive training material updates from the State Library, please email Evan Struble at estruble@library.ohio.gov.  You can also email Evan with suggestions for trainings/materials you would like to see posted on WebJunction or offered by the State Library of Ohio.
