Basic American Sign Language for Library Staff
<http://ala-publishing.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT01MzA0NDY3JnA9MSZ1PTAmbGk9MzI5ODU2NTY/index.html>Kathy MacMillan

6-week eCourse
Beginning Monday, March 7, 2016

American Sign Language (ASL) is an invaluable skill for library professionals. A basic grasp of ASL enhances your ability to serve deaf library users and opens up a new world of possibilities for baby storytime programs. Ideal for those without previous experience, in this eCourse, librarian and ASL interpreter MacMillan will use readings, multimedia resources, and online discussion boards to introduce basic ASL vocabulary and grammar appropriate for use in a library setting. Placing ASL within a linguistic and cultural context, MacMillan will offer participants several approaches to improving library services.

After completing this eCourse, participants will:

  *   Know and be able to use approximately 20-30 signs
  *   Have a basic understanding of Deaf culture and how to interact effectively with deaf patrons
  *   Understand how the library can use ASL as a service that ties into the broader community
