While school librarians prepare for students to return, TLC helps with a seamless transition. The library software company provides a team within its Client Services division devoted to school success. Some of the larger districts have their own dedicated representative for year-round support.
TLC will support the Hawaii Department of Education (HIDOE) with back-to-school software training. Mike Sweeney — HIDOE's TLC support representative — will be on-site during the 2022 Hawaii School Library Conference. August 1st is an all-day training of LS2 basics. August 2nd is an LS2 refresher plus instruction on LS2 Cataloging.
Likewise, librarians at Chicago Public Schools (CPS) will train with Joe Horning, TLC's on-site support representative. TLC will provide a refresher on August 2nd and 11th for existing CPS library staff. Training for new hires will take place on August 18th.
In addition to the training opportunities that take place for many K-12 districts, TLC provides a checklist of summer tasks. From a list of recommended year-end reports to updating SIS connections, the list includes helpful tasks to start the school year. TLC's Client Services team can help schools with any of this summer work.
The summer is also ideal for districts to complete projects with district-wide impact. For instance, Anchorage School District worked with TLC this summer to complete their migration to TLC.Cloud Services. Other schools used the opportunity to upgrade to the latest TLC software.
With a dedicated team year-round and extra attention during back-to-school, TLC supports schools. "Especially at a time when librarians and media specialists have many added responsibilities," stated Annette Murphy, TLC's CEO. "We want our schools to know that TLC is here for you."
