Meeting Description:

Are you a public librarian interested in expanding your local history collections to include web archives? If so, you’re in luck! The Internet Archive is accepting applications from public librarians to participate in a program of continuing education, training, and services to enable public libraries to build collections of historically-valuable, web published materials documenting their local communities. The Community Webs program is offered by the Internet Archive in partnership with WebJunction, and with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Please contact with accessibility requests for live captioning at least 72 hours prior to the event.
