Skilled, confident library practitioners are the foundation of innovative library service. Our WebJunction program designs and delivers learning at scale, through online training programs, self-directed study, peer-to-peer knowledge sharing and facilitated communities of practice. We focus on topics that build the capacity of libraries to continually evolve in response to user needs. This active and growing network, founded in 2002 through a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, delivers learning experiences to over 45,000 participants each year.
Our mission is to promote learning for all library staff by providing an open online learning community. Our vision is to be the place where the library profession gathers to build the knowledge, skills and support we need to power relevant, vibrant libraries. We value 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.
