WebJunction’s third online conference is coming. Session presenters will provide practical solutions for libraries looking to implement both staff and patron training using innovative learning techniques that include formal, informal, online and face to face methods. Topics will be particularly relevant to public libraries, but all library staff are welcome and encouraged to attend. Browse the conference program, consider attending the conference with others in your library or region as an online conference cohort, and register now for this FREE two-day event!

  • If you are in charge of staff training, you can use the conference as part of your training efforts. Provide staff with an opportunity to attend in some way, to expose them to online learning, new topics and new skills to share with their colleagues. See Online Conference Viewing Party Guide.
