SLA 2005: Click University

Click UniversityThe coffee mug on the right was the token given to all those who attended the launch of Click University, "an online learning community for the benefit of SLA members." This initiative gives members a chance to attend seminars and continuing education sessions without having to pay for airfare, hotel rooms and conference fees. It's even possible that members can schedule the use of a training room and "share" the sessions with colleagues.

If you're not a member of SLA but would like to check out what Click University has to offer, all you have to do is click. Two course libraries are available right now: the Professional Improvement Libraries and the Information Studies Library. The former has more than 200 courses in four different libraries: Leadership & Management, Organizational & Professional Improvement, Personal Development, and Office Applications, while the latter, which is still being developed, just has a few seminars available at the moment.

So how much will it cost? Well, a virtual membership in SLA costs US$65. Subscriptions to the different libraries range from $19 to $249. Please note that these are library subscriptions. This means that you have access to any course during the period of your subscription. If you would like to see the description of a specific course, please email me privately. And no, I don't get a commission for this =)
