Under the auspices of the 2004/05 Rural Initiative grant, awarded to the North State Cooperative Library System  by the California State Library , Infopeople will expand training in the rural areas of California. In this grant year, we will offer a total of 20 on-ground workshops in rural areas. Various locations in North State will host 10 workshops while Mono County and Calexico will each host 3 workshops. Training will be extended into the Central Coast and the western Sierra regions, which will each receive two workshops. As the workshops are scheduled, they will be announced on the rural library listserv, CALIX, and the Infopeople lists and will also appear on the Rural Initiative website .
