Professional development is a major benefit that LILRC provides to all our members, but we know that attending in-person sessions doesn’t always work with your increasingly busy schedule. Here’s a quick look at some on-demand options that you can check out yourself:
LILRC continues to offer an annual subscription to online training of software applications and social networking tools to all libraries through Atomic Training at a highly discounted price of $50 per subscription for LILRC member libraries and $100 per subscription for non-member libraries. Each subscription will allow a library staff member (user) to have access to all Atomic Training’s on-demand online tutorials for one year.
Atomic Training website currently offers over 40,000 training videos and 150+ software applications such as:
- Microsoft Word, Access, Excel, OneNote, etc.
- Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Dreamweaver
- iOS, iTunes, iMovie, iPad, etc.
- Audacity, Google
- Social media and WordPress
- Google Docs, Forms, Sheets, Slides, SketchUp, etc.
- Landing the Job: Interview Techniques
Each subscription licenses one user to access the training videos for one year. Once we receive your subscription, you will be notified the subscription activation date corresponding to your subscription date and online access information.
