Update to PA Beginners’ Trainings

October 20, 2013

More than 325 schools and library officials have registered for one of the three in-person trainings being held in the next few weeks.

If you have registered:

You will receive an e-mail from me in the next week confirming your attendance.  If you registered and cannot make it, please e-mail me ASAP to make space for others who want to attend.  Check-in will begin at 8:30 a.m., with the workshop running from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

If you have not yet registered:

There are only 3 slots available at the IU 23 (Philly-area) training, 25 slots available at the IU 15 (Harrisburg-area) training, and 10 slots available at the IU 7 (Pittsburgh-area) training.  So if you have not yet registered, please do so now.  Registration information can be found below.

Reminder:  This training is limited to no more than 2 individuals from each school and library.  It is not open to service providers.

The agenda for the day will be as follows:

—  Entity Eligibility

—  Discount Calculations (including new urban/rural definition) – new

—  Category 1 Eligible Services – new

—  Category 2 Budgets – new

—  Category 2 Eligible Services – new

—  Application Process and Forms Overview – somewhat new


I anticipate that we will cover the first 5 topics in the morning, and the application process and forms in the afternoon.


I look forward to seeing you soon!
