Online MLA courses

Since I am going to school as well as working full time, I don't feel I can travel to MLA meetings out of state. I have taken a couple on online MLA classes that have really challenged me. I am currently enrolled as a participant and instructor in the MLA Online Class Expert EBN and noticed that LibIdaho has posted another class that might interest some of you it is a self-paced online class on leadership being led by Pat Wagner for 8 MLA CE Credits. Contact pat@pattern.com for more information.

New WebJunction Course for medical library staff

Shirley Biladeau from the Idaho Commission for Libraries shared that WebJunction has a new course "SHELVING WITH NLM". The course objective includes how to accurately read shelves and properly file materials according the NLM standards.

You need to create a WebJunction account and access the course via the WebJunction Idaho home page. Call Shirley for more information 208-639-4149.

I took the class, it is too basic for a librarian but just perfect for volunteers who might be returning books to your shelves.
