Continuing Education with SABLE

The free, online (SABLE) program provides additional resources in library knowledge and skills for staff members who have no formal education in library science. This program is a supplement to the ABLE courses. SABLE is not designed to replace university-level training in library science and no college credit is offered.
To receive certificates of completion, electronically capture the Congratulations page at the end of each course, add the requested information, attach to an email and forward to tandra.j.english@wv.gov
