Our mission is to promote learning for all library staff by providing an open online learning community.

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 80,000 library staff build the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to deliver transformational services to their communities. WebJunction is free to use, all are welcome, and we’re always on.

WebJunction is a program of OCLC Research.

    Library staff must be competent in a broad range of knowledge and skills in order to run an effective library. This ever-growing collection of resources covers the spectrum of the most critical topics for those working in the library profession today. These resources were freely contributed by WebJunction members, libraries and library organizations, and other experts in the field. Documents, articles, handouts, webinar archives, links to other online services and information, plus the latest news are all gathered here, by topic.

  • WebJunctionProjects

    In addition to creating and delivering training for library staff, WebJunction designs and delivers transformational programs that connect public library service to community needs such as lifelong learning, health and wellness, and economic success. More than 70 percent of all U.S. public libraries have participated in WebJunction programs and projects.
