Continuing Education for Libraries: A National Conversation Program Las Vegas Convention Center
S224
Description :

In 2013, IMLS and OCLC Webjunction began to address Continuing Education (CE) efforts across the field of librarianship through a convening of CE influencers, a white paper, and several targeted grants. The challenges to this sphere are abundant: learners face limited time, funding, and organizational support; providers face questions of sustainability and inconsistent standards for CE delivery; and the overall ecosystem suggests significant duplication of effort. How do we do CE better? Join IMLS and its partners for an overview of progress thus far, and contribute to a national conversation that is certain to shape future CE.In 2013 IMLS and OCLC Webjunction began to address Continuing Education (CE) efforts across the field of librarianship through a convening of CE influencers, a white paper, and several targeted grants.
