We offer continuing education in practical skills. While academic programs focus on conceptual understanding of foundations, we focus on the kinds of skills that library schools generally expect librarians to learn on-the-job, but which usually turn out to require additional study.

Some librarians go to conferences, and some take classes like the ones we offer. (And some do both.) We plan our courses based on what librarians are saying they need to learn as their jobs evolve.
