ASCLA invites experienced librarians and subject matter experts to submit proposals for webinars and online courses to be added to ASCLA’s outstanding online learning offerings. ASCLA has identified four key areas of training that reflect the unique experiences and skills of our diverse membership, and which also serve training needs among ASCLA membership and the larger library community. ASCLA welcomes all proposals, and encourages proposals related to the following key areas:
- Consortia Management – designing/delivering CE, ILL models, leadership and facilitation, cooperative purchasing, successful/model collaborations, etc.
- Accessibility – basics of access, as well as specific tools and strategies to increase access to library services.
- Veterans – federal and local resources in context of diverse library types (public, academic, prison, health, etc.)
- Health – identifying resources, working with patrons in crisis, compassion fatigue, etc. especially in the areas of:
- Mental health
- Substance abuse
- Degenerative Neurological Diseases
- Aging in Place
Proposals will be accepted through March 30, 2018. Webinars and online courses approved for presentation will be offered between May 1, 2018 and August 31, 2019. Webinar presenters and online learning instructors are compensated for their work and will receive training and support for Adobe Connect, the webinar technology platform used by the division, and Moodle, the online tool used for courses.
