Leadership and Emerging Trends classes focus on training to enhance participants’ understanding of leadership and management concepts and skills.

Preservation Solutions classes focus on caring for your analog or digital collections to facilitate long-term access to collections.

Yes, every staff member at a subscribing institution can access the Learning Library. If you are a library that is a part of a larger entity, such as a university, this includes library staff, not all university staff.
