CPDWL’s First Twitter Chat: Archiving #CPDWLChat

Missed our first Twitter chat #CPDWLChat on July 26, 2019?

Check out the archived version here under the hashtag #CPDWL.

Our participants: CPDWL Co-Chair Dr. Sandy Hirsh (@shirsh), CPDWL members: Loida Garcia-Febo (@loidagarciafebo), Edward Lim Junhao (@BarbarianEd) and Ulrike Lang (@Ulrike_Lang) responded to a series of questions and shared their experiences and strategies in developing LIS skills.

Here were the 9 questions that we asked our participants:

Q1 How do you maintain continuing professional development in LIS or in your workplace?

Q2 Who has influenced you to become a librarian, and how did they influence you?

Q3 Can you share an LIS trend in your library/country/region? #CPDWLChat

Q4 In addition to a resume/CV and cover letter, how important is the applicant’s ‘web presence’ (e.g. LinkedIn, personal website, etc.) in the review process?

Q5 Can you share with us what are some important skills needed in LIS field today?

Q6 What are some tips for early career librarians or students to receive mentorship?

Q7 What advice do you have for librarians interested in serving as coaches for early career librarians or students?

Q8. What strategies can you share with folks who want to get involved in IFLA but don’t know where to start?

Q9 What are you most looking forward to in #WLIC2019?

We hope you’ll be able to join us next time when we host another #CPDWLChat!
