Beginning Workshop

The Library of Michigan's Beginning Workshop Pathway is an online, self-paced, learning pathway in our Niche Staff Skills Academy.  Anyone new to the profession or just hired at a library, no matter what their academic credentials, is welcome to take part in the course.

For those seeking an initial Level 3 or Level 4 library staff certification from the Library of Michigan completion of the Beginning Workshop course is obligatory. For more information on Library of Michigan's certification program visit the Library Staff Certification page. 

If you need to complete one or more of these to meet Library Staff Certification requirements, your certification application will be held until you are able to complete the content.
