Help Fill SLA’s ‘Pool’ of Learning

If you’re looking for a Webinar, workshop, or session about some aspect of special librarianship, odds are good an SLA chapter or division is offering it. A recent review of the calendars of selected SLA chapters and divisions turned up the following educational programs:

  • Leveraging Data to Lead;
  • Strengthening Your Interviewing Skills;
  • Live Your Best Website;
  • Green Library Design;
  • Competitive Intelligence for Information Professionals; and
  • An Introduction to Social Network Analysis.

Wouldn’t it be helpful if these and other educational offerings were available through a central repository, organized by topic and career stage? That’s the goal of the SLA Shared Learning Resources (SLR), an effort to create—as quickly as possible—a “pool” of technical, business, and management information for delivery to information professionals and special librarians. This “pool” will consist of in-person educational sessions, Webinars, online courses, and other content formats and will be managed by SLA staff and a group of selected SLA members who are familiar with the educational needs of special librarians.

If you’ve developed and delivered educational content to your fellow SLA chapter or division members or to other groups of information professionals, consider sharing your knowledge with a wider audience by submitting a proposal to the Shared Learning Resources.
