WebJunction has developed a pilot program for the Gates Foundation to help "train the trainers" in state libraries and other library agencies in how to serve Spanish-speaking library users. The pilot went so well that Gates has awarded a grant to WebJunction to spread the training to all 50 states.

The only problem with this project is its acronym. We refer to it as Spanish Language Outreach, SLO, but there's nothing slow about it. My friends at the State Library of Ohio have the same unfortunate combination of letters.

Laura Staley, who is managing the project, writes about the new grant and describes the project on WebJunction's BlogJunction.

¡Muchas gracias!
