CPDWL Standing Committee Member Highlight: Tina Haglund

“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 Tina Haglund, 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? 
Tina: I have been a member of the standing committee since 2021. I think the questions of ongoing opportunities to learn and development on personal and organisational level is of importance if libraries wants to stay relevant in a faster and faster changing world. I am mostly involved in the work and planning of coaching. Coming up is the opportunity to take part in the online coaching that takes part in November.
What is one advice you have for new librarians interested in getting involved in IFLA or in their library associations for professional development? 
Tina: Contact a member from a group/section that you are interested in to find out more. Contact your library association about how to get nominated to the section and ask also about funding to visit a WLIC. Join and volunteer during WLIC.
