WebJunction is the place where public library staff gather to build the knowledge, skills and support we need to power relevant, vibrant libraries.
WebJunction values community, collaboration, and support for lifelong learning. These values ensure that all libraries—regardless of size, type, or geographic location—can effectively use and share resources towards common goals.
Since its launch in 2003, WebJunction has helped more than 80,000 library staff build the job skills they need to meet the challenges of today's libraries. Membership is free, all are welcome, and it's always on.
A focus on library technologies, management, and services, along with public access in small and rural libraries, ensures that public librarians are equipped to meet local needs in their communities.
Our self-paced and web-based training resources are free for everyone and provide flexible paths to continuous professional development.
Library staff must be competent in a broad range of knowledge and skills in order to run an effective library. This ever-growing collection of resources covers the spectrum of the most critical topics for those working in the library profession today. These resources were freely contributed by WebJunction members, libraries and library organizations, and other experts in the field. Webinar recording, articles, documents, handouts, links to additional resources, plus the latest news are all gathered here, by topic.
