Each workshop ran from 9:30am – 2:30pm Eastern with a one-hour break for lunch. This workshop was only available as live virtual instruction.


Because the Library of Michigan wants to support Michigan library staff in strengthening their digital literacy, registration was highly subsidized and was only $15 per person, including all materials.
