Computer-Related Training Session Options @ your library®

Provided by Southeast Community College

(Through a contract with the Nebraska Library Commission and available at

“Library Broadband Builds Nebraska Communities” participating libraries within SCC’s service area)

To schedule a training session at your library, contact Nancy Holman, Southeast Community College (402) 437-2712 or nholman@southeast.edu.

Training is available through March 31, 2013 while funds last. There is a possibility that training could be extended through June 30, 2013 based on available funds.

All costs, to include fees and materials, will be covered through an existing contract between SCC 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.

If the Library would like to have an advertisement placed in the newspaper (classified or display ad—depending on cost) to be paid directly by the Nebraska Library Commission’s grant funds, please call JoAnn McManus in advance to work on placement.

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.”
