New at VLA…
Cindy Weber invites any and all interested parties to join the VLA Council on Career Development. Based on Cindy’s ongoing Career Development Facilitator training through the American Library Association, the council’s purpose will be to brainstorm ways to utilize career development knowledge, theories, and resources to:
- Create an aggregated career development resource list do be housed on the Vermont Library Association’s website.
- Develop a career assistance program that will be useful to librarians in all settings.
- Provide career development training to those librarians seeking guidance on assisting their patronage and students.
“I foresee the council working with librarians, libraries, schools and universities, community agencies, and the Department of Libraries,” Cindy says. “I think we can all agree that libraries can be useful resources for career development, and this initiative has great potential!”
The first Council on Career Development meeting will be scheduled for the end of March. Look for details on the VTLIBRARIES listserv.
The Vermont Library Association is seeking applicants for Participants (individuals with 3 to 15 years’ experience in libraries) and for Mentors (individuals with 15+ years’ experience in libraries) to represent Vermont.
