BlogJunction Vermont has been moved. It can now be found at: http://vermontdepartmentoflibraries.wordpress.com/
Please don’t forget to go to http://webjunction.org/vt-ce for the Vermont Continuing Education Group.
For the past 4 years, WebJunction Vermont (WJ-VT) has been a service provided by the Vermont Department of Libraries to offer (among other things) online continuing education opportunities to Vermont’s library community. Due to our current funding situation, beginning July 1, courses, content, and community will no longer be available through WJ-VT. You will still have complete access to WebJunction through the main WebJunction site. You will not have to register again, your registration information will be transferred over.
After July 1 you will continue to have access to any courses in which you are enrolled, through your My Courses page, up to one year from enrollment date.
We encourage you to take advantage of the remaining allotment of courses available on WJ-VT through the end of June. If you have already enrolled in a number of courses, but have not finished them, we encourage you to hold off on enrolling in more courses at this time, in order to give an opportunity for other VT library staff to enroll in a course.
The VT Dept. of Libraries is looking at options for continuing to provide free/discounted courses to library staff in VT through WebJunction and other sources. More information will be available in the coming weeks. Content, discussions and calendar of events previously located under the VT Continuing Education tab will soon be found on the VT Continuing Education group on WJ Central. The group can be found at http://www.webjunction.org/833.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org (802) 828-3261.
