Webinar: Core Competencies for Library Staff Free via WebJunction's Live Space

In this one hour webinar, we will explore competencies for library staff - how defining core competencies builds a foundation for identifying skills and knowledge gaps and leads to targeted training that will help keep libraries viable in the 21st century.

Sarah Houghton-Jan, author of the recent ALA/Library Technology Report publication Technology Competencies and Training for Libraries, will share her knowledge on the subject.

Karen Strege of the Western Council of State Libraries will discuss her organization's competencies and the resulting Library Practitioner Certificate Program.
