Seeking Session Proposals for Fall Professional Development

Thank you for your input on professional development. We have reviewed your feedback and will use it to shape our PD activities for the upcoming year.

One idea that resounded with us was your interest in having peer presentations in a conference format. 

Our C-Day activities will provide a mix of invited speakers and submitted ideas for sessions through this call for proposals. A variety of breakout sessions will be chosen to meet the diverse needs of our librarians. See the attached call for proposals.
