Webinar on Immigration Resources for Public Librarians Scheduled
The Tuesday, February 4 webinar will feature USCIS representatives
Washington, DCundefinedThe Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will present the first in a series of free webinars for public libraries about immigration and U.S. citizenship topics. The series was developed as part of a partnership between IMLS and USCIS to ensure that librarians have the necessary tools and knowledge to refer their patrons to accurate and reliable sources of information on immigration-related topics.
The USCIS Customer Service Tools and Resources: An Overview for Libraries webinar will highlight the agency’s work with libraries, ways in which libraries can find immigration and citizenship information online, and practical activities libraries can implement to engage the immigrant community.
The webinar will take place February 4, from 1:00 p.m.- 2:30 p.m. EST.
