When signing up for a CALL Academy account it’s easiest to use your work email to sign up for a CALL Academy account since we will usually automatically approve accounts from work emails and it may take longer to request and receive permission from a different email domain. However, you do not need to be logged in to your work email or at work to use CALL Academy. In addition, we do not share your course enrollment information with a supervisor without your permission.
CALL works with a number of different continuing education providers such as Infopeople, Library Juice Academy, PCI Webinars, Niche Academy, and professional associations, organizations and co-operatives like ALA, PLP and ARSL to find the most relevant and useful content currently available. Registration for select conferences, symposiums and forums is also funded under CALL.
CALL conducts a needs assessment and evaluation on an annual basis to identify the training needs of California public library staff.

CALL events and CALL Academy are available for use to all California library staff.
If you are unable to attend, please let us know as soon as possible by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name and the name of the event in your email. Some events are also recorded for inclusion in CALL Academy. You can check the event description for more information.
If you have not heard from the training provider by 24 hours prior to the event, please email email@example.com.
All CALL events are free for California library staff, however we do not reimburse for events you enroll in independently. Please remember that the events are not free since CALL covers your participation through LSTA funding. If you can not participate fully, be kind and give your seat to someone else.
