Based on input from their members and state library partners, WebJunction is making some changes to keep its services affordable and valuable to library staff and library agencies.
Free courses for sponsored members
Beginning July 1, 2011, WebJunction’s online self-paced courses will be available only to those members who are sponsored by their state library through WebJunction’s Partner Program. This means that if you are a registered user of WebJunction Illinois, you will be able to enroll in an unlimited number of courses at no charge by going to the WJIL Course Catalog.
However, as of July 1, you must be signed into WebJunction Illinois with your username and password in order to view the course catalog. The public catalog at http://www.webjunction.org/catalog will be removed. You will access your in-progress courses as usual, by signing into WebJunction Illinois and launching it through your My WebJunction or My Courses page. You will still be able to download a completion certificate for any course you have already completed.
New features for webinars
As a sponsored member, you’ll also receive early notification for future webinars from your state library. And, starting this July, we’ll email you printable certificates for any event that you attend. Webinar programs will continue to be offered for free to all members each month.
