Continuing Education

The OHLA Executive is pleased to announce a new collaborative initiative with the Ontario Library Association to provide OHLA continuing education sessions through the Education Institute. OHLA members will not require access to OTN to attend. Attendees will only require a computer, internet connection, and an internet browser with Adobe Connect supported. To ensure that your browser is supported, conduct the following test.

OHLA Education Institute sessions are free to OHLA members. Non-members may attend by becoming OHLA members or by paying an individual session fee. To register or inquire about fees, contact CE Coordinator Caitlin Carter.
