New Webinar sponsored by CPDWL and IFLA New Professional SIG

IFLA Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning and IFLA New Professionals Special Interest Group will hold the second session of the 2015 webinar series “New Librarians Global Connection: best practices, models and recommendations” on July 30. This session will explore LIS PhD programs as an option for students thinking about or currently in an LIS graduate program.

For the fourth consecutive year, CPDWL is collaborating 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 speakers come from different regions of the world.
