LIS Continuing Education via the Internet

school.  A computer with Internet access and a Web browser are all that
are needed to access these self-paced English-language instructional
modules, accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week during the posting
period. They may be taken from anywhere in the world and an MLS is not a
prerequisite for enrollment. Full descriptions of workshops, prices, and

Bulletin Board or by E-mail (the Sleuthing Serials workshop also has
optional Blackboard Virtual Classroom sessions).

Buffalo and will not appear on university transcripts. They accrue
