Greetings everyone!

I have quite a bit to share with your regarding free and/or reduced pricing for online learning opportunities!

[find-training-02.jpg]First up, we have our regularly scheduled list of free webinars for August:

This is the same list that I have emailed out for almost two years now. Due to time constraints however,  I'm not going to repost them in full but rather point you the web page that is only one click away! :)

http://webjunction.org/find-training/free-events.html

You will need to click through to the individual webinar registration/information link to find the exact time of each webinar. Remember, time zones matter! Mountain time is one hour ahead, Central is two hours ahead and Eastern is three hours ahead.

Secondly, Webjunction has recently announced that their new Course Catalog is free and open to all library staff everywhere. They offer library-specific self-paced courses, webinar archives, and other great learning materials. All you need to do to access these learning resources is to create your free account and start learning today. Register here<http://learn.webjunction.org/login/index.php> and follow the instructions on the right side of the page under, "Is this your first time here?" If you need additional assistance, please contact WebJunction<http://www.webjunction.org/about-us/contact-us.html> directly.


[LYRASIS_Logo.png]Last but not least, the Oregon State Library has renewed the statewide membership with LYRASIS through June 30, 2015! This means two things for library staff in Oregon: 1) there are vendor discounts<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/Pages/resources/lyrasisor.aspx> that you can take advantage of and 2) library staff can participate in Lyrasis trainings<https://www.lyrasis.org/Pages/Events.aspx> at the member rate! In order to do so, each library staff person who wants to sign up for any training MUST register at the Lyrasis website<https://www.lyrasis.org/Pages/MyLyrasisUserAccountRequest.aspx>  (if you have not already done so previously) --  make sure to include your library name ("institution name") and "Oregon" as the state so that you will be eligible for this level of FREE membership. Please complete this member registration well in advance of any desired training dates since there will be some turnaround time in approving your member registration.

Wrap up your summer by learning something new!

Cheers,
Darci
