Librarians with class: What do you teach?

Many libraries are working hard to increase the level of digital literacy in their communities. Whether it's structured and scheduled classes or one-to-one assistance, library instruction helps people take advantage of all the opportunities that technology can provide.

Staff and Public Technology Training Programs

These excellent examples of library training programs can help you design innovative workshops and plan for training. Some of these were devised for staff training purposes but could be easily adapted for public training, or vice versa. If you need specific lesson plans, handouts, or PowerPoints, read this post for library and nonprofit websites that share their materials for free. If your library has a technology training program or if you know of other great examples, please share in the comments.

Collecting Patron Technology Training Resources

WebJunction is taking a giant leap forward for library trainers across the country, by developing a truly valuable collection of library technology training resources and assets. These materials will be free to download and reuse, which will help reduce your library’s burden of developing and finding training materials. I'm so excited to be working with WebJunction on this project. It is actually a dream come true for me.
