Thanks very much for your assistance.Christopher Bear-BeamBonnie BrzozowskiSystem message7/6/2011 4:30:57 PM Transferred from Unassigned to Bonnie Brzozowski.AustinPublicLibrary <reference@ci.austin.tx.us>ChristopherBeam <sunbear.com@gmail.com>7/6/2011 4:50:24 PM Hi Christopher,The Austin Community College and the University of Texas continuing education programs are really your best bet for these types of classes. There are other free and low-fee based computer classes out there, but I do not believe they have classes on desktop publishing programs; however, you should definitely consult their webpages directly or get into contact with them to be sure:The Austin AcademyThis organization helps people get into the workforce and teaches computer and other skills.Austin Area Urban LeagueThey provide computer classes for folks trying to enter the workforce.Austin Free NetThis organization hosts a variety of classes and will often help people with specific programs, if asked, so it might be a good idea to contact them directly.Austin Public LibraryWe offer many free computer classes, but none on a specific desktop publishing program.Goodwill IndustriesGoodwill does offer classes on computers, though they are geared toward helping someone obtain employment.Skillpoint AllianceThey offer computer classes on various topics at three area high school locations.Austin Public Library does have a number of books on several desktop publishing programs. For example:InDesign CS5 for Windows and MacintoshUsing Microsoft Publisher 2010 It all depends on the program you're hoping to learn to use, but you could search FindIt, the library catalog, by the name of the program and see what we have.I hope this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to get in touch again if we can be of further assistance.Thanks for contacting us,Reference LibrarianFaulk Central LibraryAustin Public Library System800 Guadalupe StreetAustin, TX 78701(512) 974-7400http://www.ci.austin.tx.us/library/<br />Jayant PatelEmail Reference System9/22/2011 5:50:36 PM Dear Sir/MadamDo any Austin Public Lib carry audio/visual Chinese language learning CD or DVD ?ThanksBonnie BrzozowskiSystem message9/22/2011 6:05:35 PM Transferred from Unassigned to Bonnie Brzozowski.AustinPublicLibrary <reference@ci.austin.tx.us>JayantPatel <jayant.viru.patel@gmail.com>9/22/2011 6:26:55 PM Hi Jayant,Yes, Austin Public Libraries do carry audiovisual materials for learning Chinese. You can search and see what we have available at which locations via FindIt, our online catalog. Searching FindIt for these types of materials can be tricky, so we have some suggested search terms on our Language Learning Resources Information Guide (see "Searching the Catalog"). Under the search box in FindIt, choose "Audiobook on CD" in the "Material Format" menu to limit your search to audiovisual materials.You may also be interested in our Interactive Software or our database, PowerSpeak Languages. You need an Austin Public Library card to access PowerSpeak Languages from home.I hope this is helpful! Please do not hesitate to get in touch if we can be of further assistance with anything.Thanks for contacting us,Reference LibrarianFaulk Central LibraryAustin Public Library System800 Guadalupe StreetAustin, TX 78701(512) 974-7400http://www.cityofaustin.org/library<br />
