Some fun facts about us: Since starting in October of 2012, we have taught
373 classes to students located in 42 different countries. After
discontinuing a number of courses, we currently have 110 of them on the
books, approximately two thirds of which are scheduled for teaching over
the next six months. There are currently between 4000 and 5000 users in the
course management system.

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.
