The Education and Training Committee held its 5th annual “Everything You Always Wanted to Know about ILL” workshop in Dallas. Approximately 85 people attended and the workshop was once again well-received. We are grateful to our sponsors, OCLC, Midwest Collaborative for Library Services (MCLS), and the Dallas Public Library for their support for this workshop. The committee is currently discussing holding the workshop again in Seattle to coincide with ALA Midwinter 2013.
We also are pleased to share the first three videos in our series “Exploring Library Careers in Interlibrary Loan & Resource Sharing.” Please check out the videos on YouTube:
Feedback on these videos is welcome; you can contact either Lars Leon (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Megan Gaffney (email@example.com). Please feel free to distribute them to anyone who might be interested in a career in ILL/resource sharing!
Our Committee continues to discuss more ways we might provide education and training to the resource sharing community. Stay tuned for more updates on that effort, and feel free to contact any Committee member if you have good training ideas.
Megan Gaffney, Chair
