Libraries Adding Value With Technology TRAINING. Vengersammy, Ormilla. Computers in Libraries31. 9 (Nov 2011): 10-15.
Computer training ranges from basic classes such as How to Use the Mouse and Keyboard, Email, and Internet to more advanced classes such as Web Development, Photoshop, QuickBooks, and The Microsoft Office 2010 Suite. […] since many new users may not fully grasp class content the first time, students may retake classes at the same location or at another library.\n As part of the jobseeker course track, students tackle creating a resume, writing cover letters, and searching and applying for jobs. By making curriculum relevant and available in multiple formats (in-person classroom instruction, in-person small-group instructional workshops, live online interactive classes, and computer-based self-paced tutorials), OCLS continues to meet the needs of many learning styles and lifestyles.
