Training on Serving the Homeless

ODL announces the return of Ryan Dowd's groundbreaking training on serving the homeless

Many of you asked us to bring back this training opportunity. Thanks to funding from the American Rescue Plan Act and the Institute of Museum and Library Services, staff in Oklahoma public, tribal, and academic libraries have FREE access to this online training through the end of 2022. Please share this opportunity with your relevant staff members.

In addition to the core training offered a couple of years ago, Dowd has added hours of additional instruction related to homelessness and other topics of concern to public service staff. Select the lessons you would like to view and earn CEUs. Certificates of participation are generated after completion of lessons.
