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. The curriculum is designed by librarians with a focus on skills that are in demand in the profession, rather than the academic tradition of library education that tends to address other priorities. 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, with assignments in one-week segments.
“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
We're excited about our new certificate program. The Library Juice Academy Certificate in Digital Curation is designed for those working in libraries, archives and museums interested in learning more about and expanding their skillset in curating and maintaining unique digital assets. This certificate covers the basic principles of digital curation, a growing field which encompasses the creation, management and long-term stewardship of unique and valuable digital assets in libraries and other cultural heritage settings. Upon completion of the certificate program, the student will be prepared to undertake projects in digital curation, including collection development, rights and access, ethics and responsible stewardship, and digital preservation.
