Training

Join METRO on Monday, November 8th from 10:00 am – 11:00 am for their next fall webinar, “Practical Open Source Software for Libraries: Part 1.” Follow-up and take a closer look the next day, November 9th , with “Practical Open Source Software for Libraries, Part 2.”

Open source has become a valuable way for libraries to increase their flexibility and freedom with software. During the first session of this two-part webinar series, instructor Nicole Engard will introduce students to open source software and how it is being used to improve library services.

Students who register for the second session will take a more in-depth look at specific applications that libraries worldwide are using now to improve services for patrons and staff alike.

*Please note that attendance at Part 1 is not required but is recommended as a pre-requisite for those who need more background on open source software and its application in libraries.
