Connect and Communicate with Academic Librarians
The PaLA College & Research Divisions is exploring offering online programming by you, for you–the state’s academic librarians. Over the next few months we will explore offering professional development opportunities online, as well as using the virtual space for discussion, networking, and possibly even socializing. We hope the Connect and Communicate Series will:
- create a sense of community among the state’s academic librarians as a place to share what you’re doing at your library, learn from others, and network with those with similar interests
- provide more opportunities for professional development–both opportunities to present research and creative activities at your library and to learn from the expertise of others
- enhance the value of PaLA membership through programming, presentation opportunities, and access to program recordings through the PaLA website
This is still a work-in-progress, but we are starting to plan our first two programs to be offered in April, so check back here (
) for more information. And let us know what you would like to see… do you have suggestions for types of programs, program topics, or specific speakers you would like to hear? If so, please let us know in the comments or email Amy Deuink (firstname.lastname@example.org).
On behalf of the PaLA CRD Connect and Communicate Planning Committee (Amy Deuink, Tina Hertel, Val Lynn, and Ryan Sittler), we hope to see you “online”!
