New Librarians Global Connection: Best Practices, Models and Recommendations Webinar

Merry Christmas everyone!

A friend forwarded me the following information and thought it would be a great thing to share with this group – I agree!

So this webinar is on January 14, 2014 – which is actually 9AM Wednesday January 15 for us (a pretty decent time!). Even if you can’t make it at this time, you can always watch the archive afterwards.

Some more information below… 😀

We are proud to present the first session of the 2014 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.

Following our tradition of excellence, this year our keynote speakers come from different regions of the world. They include IFLA President Elect, Donna Scheeder and other senior library leaders.
