Partner Training

MCLS Member ed2go Online Instruction Center

The Midwest Collaborative for Library Services (MCLS) is pleased to offer a selected subset of ed2go's highly interactive courses that you can take entirely over the Internet. These courses are offered for MCLS member libraries' staff at a special reduced rate. Instructor-led courses are taught by experts in their field. Self-paced tutorials can be done independently at the student's own pace but within a set period of time. This set of online courses was selected to help library staff develop increased technical skills and knowledge. When taken through MCLS, ed2go courses are eligible for Library Education Units (LEUs) from the Indiana State Library. There is one LEU per hour taken in a course. All registrants will be provided with a certificate upon completion of the course showing the number of hours earned. For more information visit the MCLS ed2go class pagenew-window-icon.png
