To help meet the needs of ongoing continuing education for West Virginia’s library staff so they may provide professional library service, the West Virginia Library Commission is developing a three-level certification program comprised of online courses, archived webinars, workshops, and special institutes.
Library personnel who do not have formal training in library science should start with the Basic Certification track, which includes introductory coursework in these core areas: Fundamentals of Librarianship, Collection Development, Organization of Materials, Management, Programming & Services, and Technology.
Intermediate and Advanced Certification will build on the work done at the basic level. These tracks will be available in Spring 2019.Courses will be added and removed based on the timeliness of the information presented. If you have taken an online course, webinar, or workshop that you feel will benefit others, please recommend it at surveymonkey.com.
If you have any questions, please contact Heather Campbell-Shock.
