Thanks for alerting your users to what an excellent resource LearningExpress Library is, John--especially in our current economy where people are retooling on the job scene by going back to school, changing careers, or simply job hunting. LearningExpress also has a great Job Search & Workplace Skills Learning Center where people can use tutorials on interviewing and networking skills, create a resume, and more.

The Library of Michigan is pleased to provide access free of charge for all Michigan residents to this resource and many others found in the Michigan eLibrary, MeL.org and also available in all Michigan libraries--public, academic, school and special.
