Starting in May 2014, the Mountain West Digital Library (MWDL) will host free regional training opportunities for public librarians, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The goals of the workshops are to train public librarians in 21st century skills such as digitization, rights management, and curating online exhibitions.
This webinar serves to introduce potential applicants to the Digital Public Library of America, the Mountain West Digital Library, and the Public Librarian Partnership. Rebekah and Anna will discuss what participants can expect to learn by participating in a PLP workshop and how these workshops will benefit the participant's libraries and patrons. Lastly, Rebekah and Anna will respond to any and all questions about the PLP workshops.
