"[Digital Curation for Librarians and Archivists] is well worth the time and money if you, like me, work in a small institution with a small budget and are just beginning (or still in the early stages) of digital preservation. It provides an overview of things you need to consider, as well as defining what those things are. I found the final session on promoting and marketing your digital collection extremely informative and relevant to wherever you are in the digital preservation process."
-Donna Rothrock, Archivist, Salem College
" I feel more confident about the subject matter after taking this course [Basics to Genealogy Research] and can't wait to offer more detailed assistance to library patrons with their family tree research!"
- Nancy Larabee, Head of Senior Services, Elmsford, NY
" I believe that [Intro to Grant Writing] should be a required course for educational leadership programs. I loved the 4week length with no fluff. The concepts of good grant writing turn out to be transferable skills to other areas of effective leadership, coalition building, communication, and project management."
-Cindy Buerkle, School Library System Coordinator, Norwich, NY
"This course [Digital Curation for Librarians and Archivists] was great. I found so many items about digital preservation which I did not understand prior to this course. I learned about tools, techniques and equipment to use. This course was worth triple what I paid for it."
-Daniel A. Sabol, Librarian, Dobbs Ferry, NY
"Basics of Museum Registration provides a strong overview of the field and many downloadable samples and readings associated with the position. I highly recommend for anyone interested in entering the museum profession."
-Robert Long, General Manager/Special Projects U.S.Art, Dallas, TX
"[Intro to Grant Writing] was an excellent four-part course. Very thorough and helpful. I appreciated the final assignment, it pulled everything back together in a practical way."
-Tina Peak, Director of Library & Historical Resources, Lake Wales, FL
"The class [Intro to Archives] was very clearly presented and it was a good introduction to archives for someone with minimal knowledge and experience about this subject. I especially liked the class videos and the ability to re-play them (which I did) when I did not absorb the material first time. I’ve wanted to take an archives class for a long while, and this intro class was perfect since it was online. Thank you for offering archival classes online!"
- Margaret Mayfield, Lead & Technical Services Librarian, Salinas, CA
"The course [Intro to Preservation] was broken up into very easy to understand parts. It was very helpful especially for someone just starting to work with a collection that previously did not get much attention, like myself."
- Loree Jackson, Librarian Senior, Special Collections, Broward County Libraries, Fort Lauderdale, FL
"Coming from a museum studies background, this course [Intro to Archives] was exactly what I needed to gain a deeper understanding of archives and its processes. The course was taught in a way that I could easily make connections with how I understand museum practices and methods. I have greatly benefited from course and look forward to applying what I have learned into practice."
- Sigrid Degner, Recent Graduate, Milwaukee, WI
"I would recommend this course [Intro to Rare Books] to anyone who has little to no knowledge or training in rare books. It’s a good introductory course. I gained better knowledge of what constitutes a rare book. I also gained a better understanding of the structure of older books."
- Peggy Dillard, Special Collections Manager, Rosenberg Library, Galveston, TX
