Library Juice Academy offers a range of online professional development workshops for librarians and other library staff, focusing on practical topics to build new skills. Emphasis is on student interaction with instructors and with each other, supported by a variety of class assignments and reading materials. The instructors are librarians and LIS faculty who have developed specialized knowledge in the subjects they teach. Our workshops earn Continuing Education Units, and are intended as professional development activities. Workshops are taught asynchronously, so you can participate as your own schedule allows, within a four or six-week period.
“The class was great; it was substantive and engaging. Maria clearly knows her stuff, the readings were excellent, the assignments concrete, helpful, well curated. Best online class I’ve taken. Hands down. Thanks.” Kate Adler Changing Lives, Changing the World: Information Literacy and Critical Pedagogy
