Weekly Update – December 20, 2012

New option for webinar participation

When participating in a webinar approved for LEUs through the Indiana State Library, library staff members can choose to view the webinar together and not have to worry about logging in separately to receive their LEUs. If staff members choose to view the webinar together, the director will be responsible for ensuring that staff members have actually attended the session.

Webinars offered by ISL will have a registration question where staff members can indicate that they will be viewing the session with others. Lyrasis, WebJunction and other webinar providers may handle this part differently. At that point, the instructor of the webinar will get in touch with the director at that library and the director will be given a corresponding LEU certificate that they will fill out, sign and distribute to appropriate staff members. Please contact Emily Schaber (emschaber@library.in.gov) if you have any questions.

RDA Toolkit progress

In the next two weeks, directors who have ordered the RDA toolkit will be receiving their invoices. If you have not received an invoice by Friday, January 4, please contact the Evergreen Indiana Coordinator (sborger@library.in.gov). Please review the invoice to ensure that your order is correct and then send your check to West Lafayette Public Library before Friday, February 1. The sooner all libraries turn in their payments, the sooner we will be able to get access to the RDA Toolkit!
