Now that I’ve (finally) had time to think about and digest my professional learning from last year, it’s time to turn my attention to this year. Yes, being in a school is weird thanks to the “new year” starting in July. I’m already in 2018 and officially it doesn’t start for another few months!
Anyway, here’s where I’m thinking of doing a little learning over the next twelve months: NELA, the YALSA Symposium, ALA Midwinter, NEAISL, ACRLNEC and ALA Annual. The lucky librarians on my staff will be attending AASL, ALAN, MSLA and AISL, plus NEAISL and NELA. Of course, there will be in-house learning, both formal and during our annual Faculty Forum. We’re hosting the fall CLA (local independent school librarians group) Meeting, and there are at least two other meetings later this year. Thanks to Booklist, there are book preview webinars. And earlier this month, SLJ’s TeenLive gave me a day of YA goodiness from the comfort of my living room (bonus: this was the summer I got my laptop hooked up to my tv, so I could watch these things on the Big Screen).
