Access to all the resources in LearningExpress Library is paid for through a federal Institute of Museum and Library Services LSTA grant awarded by the State Library of Ohio.
If participants all use the same public library system, you can also demonstrate the path to LearningExpress Library from their library’s website. See notes to slide #4.
Users are required to register to use the courses and other interactive tools so that they may save their work, return to resources they are working on, and track their progress. LearningExpress Library does NOT require that users submit any personal information, just a user name and password. You may have the class start from their local public library’s website instead of the State Library website. This works best if all class participants use the same public library system. Make sure you check to see where the public library links to LearningExpress Library so you can guide the class. All library websites are different, and not every public library has the link prominently displayed. Newly registered users have the option to print a page containing their username and password. If your class computers have printing capabilities, you may want to have the students do this.

When you return to the test from “My Center”, you will be able to continue the test from the place you stopped.

LearningExpress Library will remember where you stopped, and will start you at that point next time you select the same course. The Computer Skills courses do not offer this feature. You may stop and start the Computer Skills courses as many times as you like, but you will have to remember where you stopped to begin again from that point. You may add as many resources to “My Center” as you like. You may delete a resource from “My Center” by clicking its “trash can” button.
