Kernels: New “Quick” Continuing Education from the State Library

Feb 08, 2021

The State Library Continuing Education team is excited to unveil “Kernels,” a new series of quick continuing education courses for librarians.

Kernels serves up bite-sized information on all sorts of library-related topics. An ongoing series of prerecorded videos, each half-hour installment offers an overview of a program, service, or library methodology applied in a public library setting. They feature practicing librarians talking about what they're up to, so others can benefit and apply the idea in their own library.

Librarians can earn 0.5 hours of Continuing Education credit by logging into IA Learns, enrolling in a Kernels course, watching the video, and completing the evaluation.

There are currently five Kernels courses available on topics ranging from escape rooms, a cloud library service, storytime in a bag, and more! Additional Kernels will be released on a monthly basis. Browse the current Kernels courses on the State Library Continuing Education YouTube channel:
