New for 2021-22: NEFLIN Cataloging and Technical Services Certification Institute
The purpose of the Cataloging and Technical Services Certification Institute is to provide staff at NEFLIN member libraries a certificate in Cataloging and Technical Services from Library Juice Academy. Ten people will be selected to take part in the program. Participants in this program must complete eight asynchronous courses over the course of twelve months (November 1, 2021 – October 31, 2022). As of September 2021, Library Juice Academy has nineteen courses which qualify for the certificate program. Current courses are listed on the Library Juice Academy website. Individual course instructors are employed by Library Juice Academy.
Once accepted, participants will choose the courses they wish to take so that a schedule can be created. Participants will have four weeks to complete a course. Courses begin at the start of a given month. Instructors release assignments weekly until the course is over.
Applications for the Institute are due by 5:00 PM on Friday, October 8, 2021. Applicants will be notified of their status by October 22, 2021. Applicants must secure permission to participate from their supervisors as part of the application process.
