Cost

As with all continuing education opportunities, there is no cost to participate in WisLine Web sessions for SCLS members, including multi-type members.   However, because there is a charge for each toll-free access number, there is a cost for members of other public library systems.  The charge will vary with the length of the program, but is generally in the range of about $14 per hour per location.  Please contact Jean Anderson with questions about this fee.

Multiple people attending at one site

Several people may attend at one location using the same computer and speaker phone.

Only one person should register, and put a list of all other attendees in the "Miscellaneous" box on the registration form.

Hardware and software requirements

WisLine Web has a page of Hardware and Software Requirements.
It is strongly recommended that you complete their browser check for Live Meeting 2003 before attending a session.

IMPORTANT: WisLine Web sessions require that PCs have several browser plug-ins installed before you participate in a session. If you do not have the plug-ins installed before the workshop, you may have problems viewing portions of the presentation. The browser check will verify if you need additional plug-ins (be sure to use the Live Meeting 2003 check!)

If you plan to use a LINK workstation for the session, and you need plug-ins, you will need to contact the LINK help desk (608-242-4710) at least one week before the scheduled session and request the plug-in installations. If you do not contact the help desk within this time frame and set-up an installation time, they cannot guarantee that they will be able to complete the installation before the workshop.

If you plan to use a nonLINK workstation for the workshop, you should be able to install the plug-ins yourself, following the instructions that appear during the browser check process. However, if you encounter problems, you may contact Dan Jacobson.
