In this one-year project,Webjunction, in partnership with the State Library of North Carolina, will develop a series of regional workshops to train librarians in the provision of information services in communities suffering from the economic downturn. The workshop will emphasize skills needed by job-seekers, including job skills, resume preparation, interviewing skills, job search strategies, and community resources and support services to provide coordinated assistance to individuals and families who have been affected by the recession. The project team will deliver the training to state library agency staffs who will then customize that training for librarians in their home states. Webjunction will also develop and host an online training module that reflects the workshop curriculum and experiences. All materials will be hosted and made available online at no cost to participants.
