I'm looking for work and need to brush up on my computer skills. How can the library help me?

One option we have for you is a collection of online computer skills tutorials through the Learning Express database. These are self-paced tutorials with beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels of the most common software products you'll need to know to improve your marketability for a new job, including Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook, WordPerfect, Windows XP and Vista, and Mac OSX Leopard desktop.

To access this database from the library's homepage, click on Research & Learn, then Alphabetical List of Databases. Click on L and select Learning Express. If you don't have a Learning Express account, you can click on the account set-up link to create one. Once you're signed in, just click on "Popular Software Tutorials" on the left-hand menu and get started learning.

As another option, last week's Featured Service, Universal Class, also has a large number of online classes on various computer topics in its course catalog. In addition to these databases, we also hold tutorial computer classes at some of our library locations. To see what is offered during the current month, check out our online event guide.
