Good day all, and apologies for any cross posting.

The following are the live, online classes which will be brought to you in January by LYRASIS. For class times, fees and other information (including links to registration), please visit http://www.lyrasis.org/Classes-and-Events/Search.aspx to search for any of the below or for another class of interest to you. Class start and end times on the LYRASIS web site are listed in Eastern Time.

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. LYRASIS Preservation classes are funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Division of Preservation and Access.

We realize that classes beginning at 10 am Eastern Time may be a bit too early for those on the west coast, and we attempt to schedule each class at varying time slots throughout the year.  If there's an early morning class in which you are particularly interested, and which you'd like to see in the future scheduled later in the day, please let Linda Gonzalez (linda.gonzalez at lyrasis.org) know.
