Announcement!! We are now offering 6-week online Gale Courses! Set up an account to participate using your SWLS library card number to get free access. The courses are asynchronous, so there are no set times that a patron has to sign in to be part of a class. Lectures are recorded. Course materials do progress over the 6 weeks, though, so working through lessons on a roughly weekly basis is generally what would be advised. For some courses, certificates of completion are provided if the patron receives a sufficient grade (some of these could count toward CE hours, in case of interest); some other courses have no grades or certificates. Here is the link for accessing Gale Courses; the main page lays out how you get started: https://education.gale.com/l-swwls/
