Previews

You can preview some of our on-demand webinars before you purchase! Just look for a "PREVIEW AVAILABLE" label. Previews are limited to a brief portion near the beginning of the recording. If an on-demand webinar you're interested in doesn't have a preview, then e-mail us at plawebinars@ala.org and we'll try to provide one.

Cost

Most on-demand webinars are approximately one hour in length, and are priced at $28 each (less 10% discount for ALA/PLA members) for individuals and $119 each (less 10% discount for ALA/PLA members) for groups, unless otherwise stated. If access to an on-demand webinar will be shared with multiple people—viewing either on an individual basis or gathered together in a single location—then the group rate applies. You'll have access to the webinar recording for one year from date of purchase.

Any on-demand webinar labeled "FREE" can be viewed immediately at no cost by an individual or group.

On-demand webinars are intended for the sole use of the purchaser, whether an individual or group. Redistribution or rebroadcast to another individual or group other than the purchaser is prohibited. Thank you for your cooperation.
