Library Juice offers a Certificate in Library Management!
Taught by Deborah Schmidle, this series of online classes provides a
strong foundation in managerial skills, and is intended for new managers
or those who would like to enhance their current knowledge base. Though
these courses touch on organizational theory, the primary focus is on
practical skills that can be readily adapted to individual needs.
The six four-week courses in this program complement and build upon each
other; however, they have also been developed as stand-alone courses and
can be taken as such. Participants who successfully complete all six of
these courses will obtain a certificate of completion for the series.
Courses in this series:
– Effective Communication Strategies
– Planning and Leading Productive Meetings
– Strategic Planning: Setting Directions for the Future
– Critical Strategies for Implementing and Managing Organizational Change
– Growing, Developing, and Retaining Dynamic Staff
– Telling Your Story: Successful Marketing Strategies for Librarians
The series begins March 2nd. Enrollment will be open through the first
week of instruction.
Each course has a price of $175 per registered participant. You can
register for all six courses in the certificate program at once, at a
10% discount. Discounts are also available for multiple staff member.
