Have you checked CMLE’s Continuing Education calendar lately?

As library people, we love knowledge and learning! If you are looking for some professional Continuing Education opportunities, hopefully you know about CMLE’s calendar!

The calendar is located on our Continuing Education page, which features a Google calendar that is updated daily with new learning opportunities. We include a variety of events like webinars, online courses, in-person conferences, workshops, and yes, even free opportunities!

The page also has links to organizations like Library Juice, TIES, and the AASL’s eAcademy that offer their own training and development opportunities.

If you are interested in participating in a Continuing Education event but struggling with the financial aspect, don’t forget CMLE offers scholarships!

Infopeople needs your help! We develop our annual continuing education/professional development (CE/PD) program in response to needs identified by the library community. We feel it is important for us to hear from as many library directors, managers, supervisors, and staff members as possible.

We have developed this online survey that asks some general questions and also seeks to assess interest in a wide variety of possible CE/PD options. Your responses will help us develop the 2017/2018 plan of service that best meets your needs. Thanks in advance for your assistance! Continue reading Share your opinion on Infopeople classes!
