OCLC offers free training on our products to our members as part of our commitment to keeping library costs down. However, we realize that product training isn't the only type of learning you need to be effective.
In order to address the broader learning goals that can help you further build your skills, OCLC is pleased to suggest additional training resources from select organizations with a proven background of serving libraries' training needs.
