To support workforce development and lifelong learning, the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) is collaborating with Gale, part of Cengage Group, to provide public libraries across Texas with access to Gale Presents: Udemy via TexShare.
Available at participating public libraries, the Gale Presents:Udemy online learning platform provides public library cardholders access to more than 19,000 continuously updated, on-demand video courses across a variety of categories such as business, technology, design and personal enrichment. Courses are taught by highly-regarded instructors and offer a customized educational experience for those who are looking to learn new technologies and skills to stay relevant in an ever-changing workforce. Additionally, nearly half of the course collection is taught by subject matter experts in their native language, enabling Texas residents to learn and upskill in their preferred language.
Texas officials recently announced a $3.5 Million Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) grant, which demonstrates their interest in investing in the state’s workforce. Additionally, reducing unemployment is key to economic growth and community strength.
“Texas is committed to developing its workforce and bringing more jobs to the state, and this resource supports that priority,” said Gloria Meraz, director and state librarian at TSLAC. “We want to make sure that anyone who wants to grow their professional skills can. Gale Presents: Udemy is an accessible, easy way to upskill.”

“Gale has been sharing its resources with the Texas K-12 community for years, and now we are honored to be able to help shape the future of the workforce through their public libraries,” said Shawn Clark, senior vice president of Gale’s domestic learning business. “These professional development resources will benefit individuals and business across the entire state.”
Texas residents can access Gale Presents: Udemy through participating public libraries.
“In today’s economic environment, it’s never been more important for businesses and individuals to prioritize learning so they can continue to keep pace with innovation by upskilling themselves and their workforce,” said Cody Crnkovich, vice president of partners and business development at Udemy. “We’re thrilled to be working with Gale and TSLAC to democratize access to critical skills and education, ensuring every Texan can take control of their professional development and help steer companies forward.”
