Learning Opportunity: Helping Patrons Find Jobs

Public librarians now have a second opportunity to learn ways to provide job-related e-government services to patrons. Watch archived footage of the webinar “E-Government in Action: Matching People with Jobs,” which was hosted by the American Library Association in early May. View the webinar now.

As part of the webinar, participants will hear from numerous e-government grant recipients on innovative workforce development programs that have successfully connected people with jobs.

Speakers include:

  • Janice Collins, technology supervisor, Mandel Public Library (West Palm Beach, Fla.)
  • Betha Gutsche, programs manager, WebJunction OCLC
  • Tiffany McClary and Sheri Shafer, NJ Works @ your Library (New Jersey State Library Program)
  • Jeff Scott, deputy county librarian, Tulare County (Tulare, Calif.)
