Attendee Testimonials

The webinar [Library of Congress Classification (LCC): Introductionwas just what I needed as I search for my next library job. My previous library was Dewey, so this webinar was a great refresher. I also appreciate the presenter mentioning an up-to-date textbook on this subject​. —G.G., Joliet, IL

I found the webinar [From Cassette to Cloud: Reformatting Audiotapeand information that Krista White presented essential because cassettes have been written off as obsolete; however, they can contain pertinent data. I commend each of you for the time, research, and energy used in preparing the “From Cassette to Cloud” webinar. —A.S., Fayetteville, NC

The speaker [Donia Conn, Preservation Week: Caring for Your Textileswas wonderful—warm and informative. She shared knowledge, tips, and humor across miles and pixels. This is not easy to do! "Caring for Your Textiles" was one of the best webinars I've attended. I appreciated how Donia provided the background of science (e.g., plant fibers vs. animal fibers) as well as the how-to and how-not-to. Thank you, ALCTS and sponsors for making this available to us. —Anonymous

I found the [Fundamentals of Electronic Resources Acquisitions] web course to be very rewarding and plan to share what I have learned with my colleagues—B.A., Adamawa State, Nigeria
