E-rate: What's New for 2016?
Thursday, October 29, 2015 - 12 pm Pacific - 90 min
Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/e-rate-whats-new-for-2016.html
There are big changes on the E-rate horizon! E-rate is an important program to many libraries, and whether you have participated in E-rate in the past, or are looking to apply for first time, you will want to know about the changes. This federal program provides discounts to assist schools and public libraries in the United States to obtain affordable Internet access and connections. Join us to learn about the new E-Rate Productivity Center (EPC), and new ways to file forms, track application status and communicate with the FCC.
This workshop will cover the basics of the E-rate program and demonstrate how to access and use your EPC account to submit your Funding Year 2016 E-rate application. Get the information you need to be successful in your application.
Presented by: Christa Burns, E-rate Coordinator for Libraries, Library Development Consultant, Nebraska Library Commission
Finding and Training Volunteer Technology Instructors
Wednesday, November 4, 2015 - 12 pm Pacific - 60 min
Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/finding-and-training-volunteer-technology-instructors.html

Small libraries are often challenged to find the staff, skills, or time needed to meet growing community needs and demands for digital literacy training. Volunteers can help you meet these needs! Learn strategies from two successful statewide projects eager to share tools and curricula to help get volunteers ready for technology training in your small or rural library. California's Get Involved: Powered by Your Library<http://www.getinvolvedca.org/> provides libraries with tools to recruit, train and retain skilled volunteers. And Guiding Ohio Online<http://www.guidingohioonline.org/training> has created curricula for volunteers to deliver digital literacy training through computer classes and one-on-one computer assistance in libraries of all sizes. Project staff will share their expertise and experience to help you build the program that is right for your community.

This webinar is hosted in collaboration with the Association for Rural and Small Libraries<http://arsl.info/>.

Presented by: Carla Lehn, Library Development Services, California State Library; Mandy Knapp and Evan Struble, Library Consultants, State Library of Ohio
