Creative Commons in collaboration with partners the American Library Association, the California State University System and the Digital Public Library of America, will design, develop, and deliver a professional development and continuing education certification program for librarians. The certificate will help librarians acquire Creative Commons knowledge and skills leading to increased capacity, services, and support for a wide range of 21st century library functions associated with Open Access (OA), open data, Open Educational Resources (OER), and public domain materials. The Creative Commons certificate for librarians will include both a modular set of learning materials that can be used independently for informal learning, and a formal, structured, and facilitated certificate the can be taken for official certification.
