MCLS soft skills workshops return, redeveloped into Essential Workplace Skills self-paced tutorials!

These popular workshops are back and better than ever! Presented by our Engagement, Consulting, & Training team, the Essential Workplace Skills tutorials offer many relevant topics for library staff with the added benefit of participating at your own pace and on your own schedule – no time zones to worry about here! EWS tutorials are still FREE for staff of our MCLS member libraries.

There are currently five courses available for registration:

  • Introduction to Accountability at Work
  • Introduction to Critical Thinking Skills
  • Introduction to Emotional Intelligence
  • Introduction to Thriving in the Midst of Change
  • Introduction to Workplace Etiquette

We will be adding more topics, so be sure to continue to watch our newsletter Training section and the MCLS store. Each Essential Workplace Skills tutorial earns 2 LEUs/CEUs, and participants can download a certificate upon completion. We offer a Certificate of Library Staff Development in Essential Workplace Skills for those who complete at least five tutorials. More information and the application form can be found on our website.

We hope you’ll check out this opportunity – the same great content in a new format to help even more library staff improve their workplace skills! Questions? Email Gwen at
