I am forwarding this information about upcoming LYSRASIS trainings. I asked for clarification of the current situation for those libraries in Oregon who are members of BCR via the State Library and received the following:

All BCR member libraries are now eligible for LYRASIS's member prices for scheduled LYRASIS classes (these are discounted from non-member class fees).

Additionally, any Oregon BCR library which currently has BCR training voucher(s) is eligible  for  attendance  in  2  LYRASIS  online  classes  through  December 31,  2010.   Libraries with training vouchers should visit http://www.bcr.org/training/Training_FAQ.pdf for details and contact Regan Harper (regan.harper at lyrasis.org) for more information.

There's a lot more detail about the transition from BCR to LYRASIS at http://www.bcr.org/transition/, should you want to provide that to your readers.  I'd be happy to answer any questions, as would Regan, who is now the Regional Director of LYRASIS West.

Please take a look at the transition website, there is a comprehensive FAQ that will answer most of your questions. Please feel free to contact Regan (see above) with other questions. Thanks.

The following online classes will be brought to you soon by LYRASIS. For more information or to register, please visit www.lyrasis.org<http://www.lyrasis.org>. Keyword: Classes and Events. LYRASIS Preservation classes are funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Division of Preservation and Access. Please keep an eye out for our weekly discount codes as part of our educational stimulus program and save when you register for certain classes.
