Help us identify topics for the 2014 IFLA/ALA free webinars

Dear colleagues:

We are planning our 2014 webinars and need your help to identify topics.

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. The webinars are a great opportunity for membership participation via new worldwide online programming.

To include topics of interest to you, leave your suggestions on the comments section by October 30. Also, recommend expert speakers or yourself!

  • What topics would you like to see included on the 2014 IFLA/ALA free webinars?
  • Do you know an expert for the topics or are you willing to present yourself?

Additionally, if you tweet, you could tag your suggestions with the hashtag #newlibgc

You can have your say by commenting below, tweeting and emailing us.

Our committee appreciate your suggestions. We shall announce the topics and speakers for the next webinar by mid-December. Thank you!

Loida Garcia-Febo, Series Coordinator

    For the next oportunity, I would like to talk about copyright in libraries. I have been participated in some events and studied about it, and I think that is an important question to discuss.

    I would like to suggest the theme that I discussed in my dissertation: Discursive administration: a new perspective for academic libraries.

    Hence, the expert in Discursive administration subject that I indicate is Professor Clóvis Ricardo Montenegro de Lima, my dissertation advisor. He is a researcher at Instituto Brasileiro de Informação em Ciência e Tecnologia (IBICT) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

    Thank you!


    My suggestion is: Coaching in the information professional’s performance and Coaching in Information Services. This was my dissertation MA in University of Sao Paulo (2013). So, I would like to contribute speaking about my research.

    Many thanks for the opportunity!
