News for September

September 2014

We have a few updates to share for this month.

The first item of news is something you’ll be happy about if you’re newly on the job market and want to take our classes to enhance your resume. We’re offering a 20% discount to new professionals and grad students, intended for people who aren’t with an institution that would pay for their courses. To get this discount, enter the promo code ROOKIE at checkout.

In other news, we are working on a refresh to our website, and also planning on making improvements to our Moodle interface. If you have used our course interface and have specific suggestions on how it could be improved, please share them by writing to

A year ago we announced a six-course series on library management that we had to cancel before it started, due to unforeseen changes in the instructor’s circumstances. I am happy to announce that we have again scheduled this series, as the Certificate in Library Management. Deborah Schmidle developed these courses, and we are very happy to be working with her again. She is extremely well qualified to teach this course series, as you may already be aware, as she has been prominent in the field of organizational change for many years. The courses in this program can be taken separately, out of sequence, or as a series for the certificate. The courses start next March. For more information, see:
