Developing a Credit-Bearing Information Literacy Course

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.

Some LJA trivia: We get customers from around the world. So far, in
addition to the US, people have taken our classes from Abu Dhabi, Antigua,
