We have great news about new resources! The Law Library is excited to be included in the recent rollout of a project called: Online Workforce Development & Job Skill Platforms (CAreer Pathways) offered by the California State Library. They offered us six different platforms (databases), and we chose, and have now implemented, four of the six that we felt would most benefit you, our library users. They can be used by everyone (not just borrowers or benefits holders). And, you can use them from home as well as in the library!

Coursera

 

 

Coursera is a public benefit corporation based in California whose mission is to help individuals build the skills they need for in-demand jobs. The database platform offers 5,000 courses and certificates. Programs are subtitled in over 50 languages. The law library has curated a law-related collection of sources including AI Law, Privacy Law & Data Protection, and “A Law Students Tool Kit.”
