About Thursdays with Pioneer

Join us online every Thursday at 1:30 to learn about a resource available through Pioneer: Utah’s Online Library. Thursdays with Pioneer are informal, online trainings designed to familiarize you with resources available to Utah libraries and patrons. Trainings are designed for all libraries and library staff in Utah. This is a great way to get Continuing Education credit and to learn about all the resources available to you and your patrons through Pioneer. Join us each week for a genuine and (hopefully) fun discussion. See what’s coming up next and register.

Pioneer provides premium resources to all Utah residents.
