The State Library of Kansas is sponsoring two webinars this fall on the resources available from Learning Express.
On Tuesday, October 4th, from 10:00 to 11:00 AM, Shana Ashwood will be presenting resources in Learning Express Library for K-12 students. This will help Kansas librarians assist their students and school age populations. This workshop will be held in Go-to-Training, but the program will be available in archive for Kansas librarians.
There are resources in Learning Express Library for students of all ages. There are modules for elementary, middle school, and high school students that will help them build skills in subjects they can choose. There are resources for college preparation that include a number of major tests. Although the October 4th program will focus on K-12 resources, librarians should be aware that there are a variety of resources designed to help college students build their academic and life skills and sections that will help them prepare for graduate school entrance exams. There is also a section for technical and career college students.
On Thursday, October 13, from 2:00 to 3:00 PM, Shana will be presenting a program on the Learning Express Job and Career Accelerator. The JCA, as it is sometimes known, is an essential tool for job seekers and for librarians who are trying to help them. It combines a wealth of resources on occupations, local and national job listings, creating resumes and cover letters, and interviewing skills. It also allows a searcher to organize and track his job search progress.
This workshop will also be held in Go-to-Training. It will not be archived, but librarians who cannot make it on October 13 may register for one of the regular Wednesday workshops on the Job and Career Accelerator that are sponsored by Learning Express. Go to:
