Online Training Opportunities for Library Staff

The OLC’s Professional Development Committee (PDC) has created a curated list of online training opportunities for this time when we are unable to meet in person. Take advantage of these courses and learn something new, sharpen your skills, or discover an aspect of librarianship that you hadn’t explored before.
