Career Development

career development


Together, we can bring change to meet the needs of library workers and information professionals in academic, public, school and special libraries, and those in non-traditional library careers.

My experience mentoring new members for the NMRT, developing global webinars presented by ALA and IFLA’s New Professionals and the Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning Section, producing and moderating an online training for new REFORMA leaders, educating LIS students on subjects such as diverse populations, outreach, library programs and services allows me to understand our need to strengthen career development programs. 

I am inspired by the work of the ALA Divisions and the ALA-APA to build on their initiatives.

  • Lines of Action: We must equip our members with professional and leadership skills needed to flourish in the current moment they are experiencing in their careers, to lead from where they are, and to serve libraries, library users and communities.
  • Our content should be available in different online platforms according to our members' needs. Stay tuned.
