The Train Station: Overview

Continuing Education for North Carolina Library Staff

NEW Infopeople course scholarships!

On Thursday, December 3rd the State Library announced a new scholarship program for free registration to selected online courses offered by Infopeople.  These courses were offered to NC library staff on a first come-first serve basis and the number of scholarship seats for each course was limited. Less than 24 hours later all available scholarships were claimed! This program is being offered on a pilot basis; we will evaluate the effectiveness of these courses and learning format to determine whether to offer this type of learning opportunity in the future.  Thanks to everyone for their interest in this program! 

Scholarships were offered for the following courses in this pilot program:

  • Teen Services Fundamentals
  • Library Grants 101
  • Using Technology to Connect with Your Community
  • Managing Digital Overload
  • Techniques for Improving Customer Service to Those with Mental Illness
  • The Effective Library Spokesperson
