Libraries are faced with the exciting and endless challenge of upgrading staff competencies with little to no resourcing. Multiple work locations add the complicating factor of coordinating schedules. Online, self-paced learning offers many conveniences, but Learning Management Systems are beyond the means of most libraries. Open online tools can help! Hear from Markham Public Library (Ontario) staff, and learn how you can develop your own in-house Learning Management System using open resources such as Google Sites and Mozilla Backpack. Build digital literacy capacity in your library workers to enhance the technology services our communities rely on.
