While academic programs focus on conceptual understanding of foundations, we focus primarily on the kinds of skills that library schools expect librarians to learn on-the-job, but which usually turn out to require additional study. These workshops earn Continuing Education Units, and are intended as professional development activities. Workshops are taught asynchronously, so you can participate as your own schedule allows.
