ACRL-Oregon has a whole bunch of money that we would love to spend on our
members so you can participate in online learning opportunities this Spring
and Summer (or even Fall if you can get registered before the end of June).
The application is super-simple and will only take a few minutes to
Take a moment and browse through the webinars and e-courses available
through ACRL <http://www.ala.org/acrl/conferences/elearning/webcasts>,
InfoPeople <https://infopeople.org/>, Library Juice
countless others. The program doesn't have to be from a library-specific
provider so long as it is relevant to you and your work. For example, I
just applied to take the Mindfulness for Reduced Stress
course in May through Library Juice, and I'm sure there is no one in our
field right now who isn't stressed.
Please consider taking a little time to find a small oasis of good and
learning for you. We really want to support you!
Chair, ACRL-OR Scholarship Committee
