Continuing Education News
The Health Insurance Marketplace associated with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) opened on October 1. Many libraries are implementing community-based strategies to address this new information need, while continuing to grow their own knowledge about the requirements of the law. Please join us for this WebJunction webinar to hear from library representatives about the types of information requests they have received in the first several weeks of open enrollment, and what they have learned in responding. ACA experts will also be on hand to share key policy updates and answer questions during the live Q&A portion of the webinar.
Registration is available at: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/health-happens-in-Libraries-addressing-ACA-open-enrollment.html
If you cannot attend this live session, a recorded archive will be available to view at your convenience at the Health Happens in Libraries project site.

The CARLI Digital Preservation Trainers would like to announce a "save the date" for a series of webinars on digital preservation. The webinars will cover the six digital preservation “modules” created by the Library of Congress’ Department of Digital Preservation Outreach and Education (http://www.digitalpreservation.gov/education/).
There will be four webinars in total. The first will be a one-hour overview that will introduce the topics covered in the three subsequent webinars. Each of those webinars will be two hours and cover two of the digital preservation modules. Dates and time for all four webinars are listed below.
Registration information for each webinar will be announced at a later date.
Who should attend? Librarians and IT staff involved in acquiring and creating digital materials, and those who are beginning to think about acquiring digital materials. No previous experience in digital preservation is needed.
Overview Webinar: Tuesday, February 4, 2014, from 10:00 – 11:00am
The one-hour overview will be a brief introduction of the webinar series curriculum.
Identify and Select: Tuesday, March 4, 2014, from 10:00am – noon
Identify the digital content your library owns that should be considered for preservation. Apply selection criteria to your content to determine what should be preserved.
Store and Protect: Tuesday, April 8, 2014, from 10:00am – noon
Consider issues for the long-term storage of your digital content. Protect the digital content you’ve created, from assuring the fixity of the files to disaster planning.
Manage and Provide: Tuesday, May 6, 2014, from 10:00am – noon
Learn what provisions are needed for the long-term management of your digital content. Determine how you will provide access to your digital content now and well into the future.
All webinars will be recorded and posted on the CARLI website. If you have any questions about this webinar series, please contact the CARLI Office at support [at] carli [dot] illinois [dot] edu
