Nebraska Library Commission Online Sessions
The Nebraska Library Commission uses the GoToWebinar online meeting
service to present online sessions. GoToWebinar sessions are live
presentations that you access from your own computer via the Web. Audio is provided via Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) using a
microphone. This means access to a telephone is not required.
GoToWebinar works on Windows, Mac, Google Chrome OS, Linux, iOS and
You do not need to pre-install GoToWebinar onto your computer before
attending a session. For Windows and Mac users, when you join a session the GoToWebinar
application automatically begins downloading as part of the login process.
This only takes about a minute.
Attendees running Linux or Google Chrome OS will join via
Instant Join app. Mobile apps are available for both

GoToWebinar login instructions are sent to registered
attendees after registration for a session has closed. The Registration End
date is listed on each session page.
In order to hear the presentation, attendees must be using a
computer with a sound card and speakers. To ask questions and
participate in Audio discussion, attendees will also need a microphone. A
Question and Answer feature, where you can type in your questions/comments,
is also part of the GoToWebinar interface, so you can ask questions if you
do not have a microphone. Nebraska libraries: If you don't have
a microphone for your computer you may request one from the Nebraska Library
Commission, at no cost to you, by contacting
Christa (Burns) Porter at least a week in
advance of your session.
Sessions may be recorded for anyone who may want to see
them again or who cannot attend at the scheduled time. Registration for a
live session is not required to view the archived recording.
