Continuing Education Opportunities


Electronic Resources Challenge, Winter 2014, starts soon

Here is what students said about the Challenge:

"Can I take the Electronic Resources Challenge again?"

"How do the electronic resources fit with Common Core?"

"My biggest discovery during this project was how many resources are available for me to use in my classroom"

"Overall, this was such a wonderful learning experience. I had no idea that the State Library provided ready-made handouts on these resources for our patrons - easy to print out and have available. I would encourage all SD librarians to take advantage of this experience; there is so much to learn."

This Challenge has something for beginners, trustees, veteran Challengers and school personnel, with contact hours for each option. See more at
