What is a webinar?
One of ALSC's goals to provide children’s librarians with timely, educational and affordable professional development opportunities. Because life in a library moves fast, ALSC's webinars are the perfect solution for someone who wants and needs educational information but doesn't have a lot of time or resources. These short (one hour) interactive sessions taking place in Adobe Connect give librarians and library support staff the opportunity to learn right at their desks. The only necessary tools are a computer and the internet. Live webinars are free and open to all. All webinars will be recorded and available in the archived webinars section of our website immediately following the live presentation.
Archived webinars are now free for members!
Archived webinars are now available free and on-demand for ALSC members! For non-ALSC members, individuals pay only $25, and groups $195. These webinars will not be offered again live, but you receive unlimited access to the recording with your ALSC membership or archived webinar purchase.
Live webinars are free and open to all.
