While academic programs focus on conceptual understanding of foundations,
we focus on the kinds of skills that library schools generally 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.
