About This Course
Libraries: Chapter I is an introductory course to libraries, and their place and importance in the community. Here, we will unpack and relocate the library in our thinking and imagination. Moving from the intangible to the practical, the course will introduce the core elements of the library and a basic understanding of what is needed to begin library work.
Libraries: Chapter I consists of four modules, the first of which enables understanding and maximizes learning in the other three. Each module comprises self-reflection activity, reading, quizzes, videos and sharing of learning through self-tests, writing, and discussion fora.
