ALSC Online Courses

ALSC Student Sessions

ALSC invites student members to interact, network and learn virtually with our new online workshop series, ALSC Student Sessions. These free, one-hour programs taking place in OPAL (Online Programming for All Libraries) give students the opportunity to learn first-hand about hot library issues from ALSC members around the country. Sessions aim to be interactive, and all participants need is a computer with speakers and internet access. OPAL allows participants to interact via text chatting, voice-over-IP, synchronized browsing, and other functions. Visit OPAL for more information.
