The Fall 2017 ODL Training Schedule is now available!
Students may be eligible to receive CEUs for attending the training classes which can be used to renew their librarian certification.
ODL’s Office of Library Development provides hands-on classes for computer programs, apps and technology. Training is conducted on computers, iPads and MS Surface Pro tablets in ODL’s Computer Lab!
The classes are free and cover many useful topics. From Historypin to social media and proposal writing to Photoshop, these technology-based classes will help take your library and literacy work to the next level… Also, it’s just plain fun!
Schedules are usually released in the spring and the fall every year. Check back for more class offerings.
Librarian Certification Classes are now available for registration.
Register for each class by clicking on the link for the particular class you want to attend. All registrations are processed online using the Eventbrite service. This online system allows you to verify you are registered. In addition, you can see who else is attending and from where so carpooling opportunities are identified. There is a class limit of 25 for each class and classes will NOT be held if less than 5 people register. You will be notified by e-mail a week in advance if a class has been cancelled.
If any of the classes are full, you can place your name on a waiting list if you register with an email address.
