Did You Miss the Webinar on Grantseeking? Do You Wonder What Happened at ARSL?

Did you miss the webinar on Grantseeking?  No worries!  You can access it as a WebJunction course for FREE!  Other past webinars are also available!

  • New Course: Grantseeking for Libraries. Funding sources for libraries is an important discussion for library staff, board members, and even the community at large. Finding and increasing funding from private sources allows libraries to better meet the needs of their communities. With the help of a self-paced course from Foundation Center, you can learn how to find and secure new financial support for your library. The online course walks you through tips that highlight what you need to know to be successful when seeking grants.

WebJunction also offers FREE content, such as this overview (with links) of the annual conference of the Association for Rural and Small Libraries:

  • Linking Libraries: Association for Rural & Small Libraries Gather in Springfield. The annual Association for Rural & Small Libraries (ARSL) conference was held September 13-15, in Springfield, Illinois. This year’s record-breaking attendance is a testament to the value of the conference and the community it builds. Over 750 library staff from rural and small libraries, representing 49 states, descended on the Land of Lincoln and showed Springfield what ARSL is all about!
