Here is the latest news and updates from WebJunction:

[Graphic: webinar and self-paced course icons]The free WebJunction Course Catalog<http://learn.webjunction.org/> has a fresh new look! In addition to being loaded with over 40 self-paced courses and 200 webinar recordings, the Catalog now has an improved interface and user experience. All of the content is now combined together and organized by topic for you to browse to find just what you need. There are also improvements to the My Courses section; courses are now arranged by those that you are still working on and those that you have completed. And as always, when you complete a course in the catalog, you'll be able to obtain a certificate.

We know that in a busy library, finding time to attend a live session isn't always an option. You can count on the WebJunction Course Catalog to be there when you need it, to help meet your training needs. If you haven't visited and browsed the content or taken a course in a while, come over and see what's new<http://learn.webjunction.org/>! We're excited about these changes and look forward to hearing what you think.
