Other Important Related Information:

Training is available through June 30, 2013 while funds last.

All costs, to include fees and materials, will be covered through an existing contract between MCC and NLC. This means that any session you may schedule with the college at your library will be at no cost to the library or to the student.

After training is scheduled, you may request our credit card sized promotional thumb drives from Barbara Caron at Barbara.caron@nebraska.gov — please provide her the with the name of the class, date and location of the class, along with the name of project partner doing the training—in this case MCC. Tell her the maximum number of class participants expected—this is how many thumb drives you will receive so that you can distribute them to participants who show up for the class.

If the library would like to place a classified advertisement in the newspaper to be paid directly by the Nebraska Library Commission’s grant funds, please follow these guidelines:
1. We only pay for classified Ads—not display ads.
2. The library writes and places the ad in whatever newspaper(s) is best for your community—can be more than one day.
3. Keep ads to $40.00 or LESS for any one class. If your ad costs more than this—you need to get that approved in advance by communicating with JoAnn at joann.mcmanus@nebraska.gov If you are advertising two classes in the same ad then the limit in that case is $40×2+ $80.
4. Since it’s only a classified ad, you do NOT need to credit the grant funders in the ad.
5. The ad should list the class(such as Beginning Excel Class taught by Southeast Community College), say that it is free, ask people to register in advance by calling or emailing the library (your choice), and give the time and location of the class. (remember the classes must be held within your library).
6. The bill can either be directed to JoAnn McManus at the Nebraska Library Commission OR directed to the Library. However, if the bill is directed to the library, the library must forward the bill to the NLC for us to pay directly. We will NOT be able to reimburse the library for any bills that they may pay.
7. After the classified ad appears in the newspaper, please send a copy of the ad to JoAnn McManus, NCL for our records—and so when we receive the bill we have that ad to attach to that paid bill for our files.

Note: When the library or the college promotes any training program scheduled through this opportunity, please acknowledge the funding source by using the following language: “This project was supported in part by the Department of Commerce, National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP), funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, as administered by the Nebraska Library Commission.” This applies to all flyers, display ads, and press releases. However this language does not need to be included in classified advertisements.
