Welcome to WebJunction Texas for Texas library staff!
If you’re a returning user, things may look a little different and a few things have changed, but this is still the place where you’ll find professional development resources including free access to over 300 online courses related to libraries, soft skills and popular software.
How to Get Started with the new WebJunction Texas:
• Returning Users: If you had enrolled in and accessed courses after 10/1/2010 and you were a Texas affiliate, your account should have migrated to the new course site and you should have received an email from WebJunction with a temporary password. To access the new Webjunction Courses site, click “Go to Courses” in the box on the right. Log in with your previous WebJunction username and the temporary password. Upon login, you’ll be asked to choose a new password. WebJunction strongly suggests that you choose the password you used on the old site. If you do that, you will then have the same login and password as before. If you never received an email from Webjunction and/or can't find the email sent to you, try logging in with your username and click the "forgot password" link to reset your password.
• New Users: If you’d like to preview the courses available through WebJunction, follow the “Preview Course Catalog” link on the right. If you decide you’d like to request access to those courses, follow the “Request Course Access” link to the right and complete the online form. Please provide your work email address and Texas library name, so that we may easily verify and approve you as a Texas affiliate. You will receive an email notifying you that your account has been approved (or denied), along with instructions to create your account on the new course site. Once you’ve created your course account, you can easily log in to the course site from this page via the “Go To Courses” link.
