CPDWL Standing Committee Member Highlight: Mantra Roy

“This is How We Do It: One Professional Development Activity in the Lives of Librarians from Around the World” is a new series from the IFLA Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning Section to highlight our standing committee members, who they are and what they do!

In this post, we highlight Mantra Roy, CPDWL standing committee member!

Why are you a standing committee member of CPDWL and what are you working on for CPDWL Section at the moment? 
Mantra: I believe that helping a librarian grow with access to new skills, new educational resources, new ways of doing traditional duties – professional development – is essential. CPDWL helps me learn and share, globally, what librarians are doing and can do to continue learning and growing. I am working in the CPDWL award criteria development and also in the global scholarly communications project.
What is one advice you have for new librarians interested in getting involved in IFLA or in their library associations for professional development? 
Mantra: Learn about the organization and its specific project/group you want to join. You need to be sure that your ongoing and forthcoming professional plans align a bit with the organization you want to join for prof development.
