Jun: Basic American Sign Language for Library Staff (ALA)

6-week eCourse
Beginning Monday, June 2, 2014

American Sign Language (ASL) is an invaluable skill for library professionals. A basic grasp of ASL enhances your ability to serve deaf library users. Ideal for those without previous experience, in this eCourse, librarian and ASL interpreter MacMillan will use readings, multimedia resources, and online discussion boards to introduce basic ASL vocabulary and grammar appropriate for use in a library setting. Placing ASL within a linguistic and cultural context, MacMillan will offer participants several approaches to improving library services.
