WebJunction Offers Courses, Community

First on the agenda here at Library Supporter: spread the word about WebJunction!

In 2002, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation awarded the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) a three-year grant to build a portal for public libraries and other organizations that provide open access to information. Building on the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's five-year-old U.S. Library Program, which has provided over 40,000 computers with Internet access to more than 10,000 libraries across the United States and Canada, WebJunction is the work of five organizations, led by OCLC.
Don't know enough about searching the web to help your patrons? Would you like to find out how to troubleshoot your PC so when you call the Systems Room you won't sound like an idiot? Try the free, webased courses over at The Learning Center. Perhaps you need a little boost? Try All Aboard!, WebJunction's Community Center, where you can share ideas, brainstorm, ask questions... or just say three words.

I guess I need to mention that I'm proud to be a Webjunction Advocate. ;)
