We are excited to announce the second installment of this year’s webinar series “New Librarians Global Connection: best practices, models and recommendations.”
For the third consecutive year, IFLA Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning and IFLA New Professionals Special Interest Group are partnering with the American Library Association to present a series of free quarterly webinars on issues of interest to new librarians, library associations and library schools, library-decision makers, and all library workers. This is a great opportunity for membership participation via new worldwide online programming.
Our April webinar will focus on technology, innovation, and user needs. We’ve recruited an amazing panel of two experienced library industry leaders and a new professional to shed light on these issues in different parts of the world. Serving as keynote speaker will be Hugh Rundle, public librarian from Australia’s City of Boroondara Library Service. We hope you can join us!
