NEBASE Hour for November 2007: WebJunction: Resource for Rural Libraries

November 7, 2007 - 11:00am-12:00pm (Central Time) Registration Deadline: November 5

WebJunction is an online community where library staff meet to share ideas, solve problems, take online courses - and have fun! If you have not looked at the offerings at Web Junction lately, it's time to take a look. WebJunction provides resources and training specifically for rural and small libraries covering advocacy, funding, outreach and technology. Attend this session to learn what your colleagues across the country are doing to bring library services to their rural and small communities.

The session will be conducted by Christa Burns, OCLC Member Services Coordinator for NEBASE. Participants will receive 1 hour of CE credit. There is no cost to participate in this session.

For more information and to register to attend this session, please go to our Training Portal.

INTRODUCING CENTRA LIVE! This Online Session will be conducted using Centra Live web conferencing software. For this reason it is crucial that you review the Centra Live technical requirements and perform the recommended Centra system check even if you've successfully attended previous Nebraska Library Commission Online Sessions. (Previous sessions used Genesys and Live Meeting software.) Please do this several days in advance of your scheduled session so you have plenty of time to update your system if necessary. Technical requirements (including a link to the system check) and general access instructions are available on the Nebraska Library Commission Online Sessions webpage.

AUDIO NOTE: Audio for Centra Live online sessions will be handled via Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology, as opposed to a telephone conference call. This means access to a telephone is not required. However, in order to hear the presentation attendees must be using a computer with a sound card and speakers. To ask questions and participate in class discussion, attendees will also need a microphone. 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 emailing Jeannette Powell at least a week in advance of your session. If only one individual is attending the session from a particular computer, a headset may be used in place of the speakers and microphone.
