Teach for ASGCLA

The Association of Specialized, Government and Cooperative Library Agencies (ASGCLA) invites experienced librarians and subject matter experts to submit proposals for webinars and online courses to be added for ASGCLA’s outstanding online learning offerings.

ASGCLA has identified four key areas of training that reflect the unique experience and skills of our diverse membership, and which also serve training needs among ASGCLA membership and the larger library community. ASGCLA welcomes all proposals, and encourages proposals related to the following key areas:

  • Veterans– federal and local resources in context of diverse library types (public, academic, prison, health, etc.)
  • Accessibility– basics of access, as well as specific tools and strategies to increase access to library services.
  • Consortia Management– designing/delivering CE, ILL models, leadership and facilitation, cooperative purchasing, successful/model collaborations, etc.
  • Health– identifying resources, working with patrons in crisis, compassion fatigue, etc. especially in the areas of:
    • Mental health
    • Substance abuse
    • Degenerative Neurological Diseases
    • Aging in Place

Proposals are accepted year-round. Webinars and online courses approved for presentation will be offered between September 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021. Webinar presenters and online learning instructors are compensated for their work and will receive training and support for the Zoom Platform, the webinar technology platform used by the division, and Moodle, the online tool used for courses.
