Story
Tagline
The learning place for libraries. Free, open, and always on!
Introduction

Our vision is to be the place where the library profession gathers to build the knowledge, skills and support we need to power relevant, vibrant libraries.

We value community, collaboration, and support for lifelong learning. These values ensure that all libraries—regardless of size, type, or geographic location—can effectively use and share resources towards common goals.

Since our launch in 2003, WebJunction has helped more than 70,000 library staff build the job skills they need to meet the challenges of today’s libraries. Membership is free, all are welcome, and we’re always on.

Our focus on library technologies, management, and services, along with public access in small and rural libraries, ensures that public librarians are equipped to meet local needs in their communities.
