reQuest Training
A service of the Connecticut State Library and your local library

For New reQuest Participants: Overview of Training

reQuest training is given free of additional charge to libraries that are participating in reQuest. Libraries are not activated in reQuest until a staff member has attended training. The sessions use a "train the trainer" approach so that the attendee will be able to train others at their library. Sessions are scheduled on an ongoing basis. Training consists of three sessions:

* PAC Searching and Administration is a prerequisite for all other courses.


Unless otherwise noted, all sessions will be held in the Training Lab at the Middletown Library Service Center (MLSC). (Directions to MLSC.) 

Day of training

You will have approximately one hour for lunch. You may choose to dine at one of the numerous restaurants in the area or you may bring your lunch and use our staffroom.
If you are attending as an ILL "refresher," you should bring your reQuest ILL passwords with you. Also, your library should not use the staff functions of Interlibrary Library Loan while you are attending the reQuest Interlibrary Loan training session.


To register for a reQuest training class, please go to the Connecticut State Library's Calendar of Events and register online.

Preference is given to new reQuest participants, but those wishing to refresh their skills may attend if space is available. Those attending will receive Continuing Library Education Certificate (CLEC) credits.

New Participants: Once we have received your signed participation agreement we will call to register you for training. One week before training, we will call to re-confirm your attendance.
