Through the generous support of OCLC, the Gates Foundation, and many state library agencies across the U.S., WebJunction continues to provide timely and relevant learning content for you to assess anytime, from anywhere. Certificates of completion are made available to all learners, after completing any course or webinar enrolled in from the catalog.

WebJunction continues to add resources. The catalog currently houses 25 self-paced courses and 99 webinar archives produced by WebJunction or by one of its content collaborators at Infopeople, TechSoup, ALCTS or the Montana State Library. Five new courses were created in 2014 through the collaborative efforts of 12 trainers from libraries across the U.S., as part of OCLC's "Strengthening CE Content" initiative, a project funded by IMLS. Over the next year, WebJunction will continue to grow its catalog of learning content, and will add new resources on topics of high interest on Please be sure you are subscribed to "Crossroads," the monthly e-newsletter that spotlights new learning programs and professional development opportunities.
