Government Information in the 21st Century (WebJunction) - "A continuing education program to train reference and public services librarians and library workers in the use of government information.... The program addresses identified issues related to the general lack of awareness of and needed skills to make effective use of government information resources as well as the perceived lack of confidence in the use of government resources.  In addition, it supports the development of a government information resource model that expands the role of Federal Depository Library Program librarians in training and support of non-depository library staff in their geographic area."

Online Programming for All Libraries (OPAL) "is an international collaborative effort by libraries of all types to provide web-based programs and training for library users and library staff members."
