Portland Community College (PCC) Library is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a 2010 LSTA grant for the project "Expanding Library Continuing Education Opportunities for All of Oregon."
The goal of the grant project is to complete the foundational work for developing a coordinated program of library continuing education in the state of Oregon. Steps in this project include conducting a statewide needs assessment to determine training needs of all levels of library staff throughout Oregon; determining how to best meet the needs identified in the assessment through a review of various modes of delivery, funding models, and best practices in place in other states; and developing a business plan for a sustainable model to deliver library-related continuing education to all parts of the state that will be delivered as a report to the Oregon State Library.
Hiring will begin in January for four contract positions to carry out these activities. The primary position is the Central Coordinator, who will work 20 hours/week (1000 hours/year) based at PCC Sylvania Library in Portland. Three Regional Consultants will be hired for approximately 250 hours/year each, located in different areas around the state. These positions will be announced on Job Line and Libs-OR.
Please keep your eyes out for the job listings and for more about the project.
