MALA Library Espresso Shot Training Subscriptions 


Are you looking for a quick tutorial on a specific library topic? We have just what you need!  A Mid-America Library Alliance (MALA) Library Espresso Shot Training subscription.  MALA is offering a one year subscription of short 3-10 minute tutorials that cover library-related current topics in a shorter timeframe. You will also receive any new “espresso shot tutorials” we add during your subscription year.

Printable Library Espresso Shot tutorial list with descriptions, presenters & lengths!

Upon successful registration of your one year subscription, you will be emailed a document listing the topics available with a link to each tutorial’s page. SAVE THIS DOCUMENT!  To access the MALA Library Espresso Shot tutorial you would like to view, click on the title.  On the next page, you only need to enter your name, library and email, click register, and you will immediately be sent the link and password for that “Espresso Shot”.  As passwords are changed frequently, you may be updated with new passwords during your subscription year as well as links for new tutorials that are added.
