Basic Skills: The Community and The Library – Online
October 7, 2019 @ 8:00 am - October 18, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
The Community and The Library
Knowing and understanding the community is key to being able to provide the library collections and library services that the community wants and needs.
Class starts on October 7, 2019, and all assignments must be completed by October 18, 2019.
This is an online class. Class participants read or view materials, discuss issues in a forum, and complete projects and assignments. The instructor offers feedback and explanations of material. The class is asynchronous — class participants do not need to be online at any particular time; however, there are due dates for assignments, which must be met.
A few days before the class starts, class participants will be sent information about accessing the class.
This is one of the required modules to fulfill the Basic Skills requirements for Nebraska Librarian Certification. For a complete list of Basic Skills modules, see Basic Skills for Nebraska Librarians Courses.
Basic Skills courses are open only to Nebraska residents or those who are employed by a Nebraska library. The Basic Skills courses are sponsored by the Nebraska Library Commission and Nebraska’s Regional Library Systems.
Class participants who are enrolled in the Nebraska Public Librarian Certification program, and who successfully complete the course will earn 2 CE credit hours.
