ISL Certification Portal: Introduction and Walk-Through – 1 LEU

In July 2021, the Indiana State Library (ISL) launched a new librarian certification portal: Certification for Indiana Librarians. Many librarians have accessed the portal, updated their information, and successfully renewed their 5-year certificates online. This informal meeting is designed to demonstrate how the portal works, share some tips for successfully navigating within the portal, illustrate activities that can be done from the portal, and address individual’s questions and concerns. We will demonstrate how to use the public look-up function, how to find and print out your own certificate, and how the name change process works.
