CPD&WL newsletter published

By Eileen Breen

Dear colleagues

The June issue of the Section’s newsletter is now online.

It includes a feature on peer coaching in the post-departmental library, news from Emerald and details on the Section’s programme in Gothenburg.

The Gothenburg session will be on ‘Retention and Job Satisfaction: Can continuing professional development make a difference?’ Session 128. Saturday 14 August 2010, 9.30 – 11.30 Room: F 4-6. It will be conducted a bit differently than many IFLA sessions: the emphasis will be on discussion and interactivity with the participants. The selected presenters below will have a short time to present some of the main ideas of their paper before engaging in discussion with audience members. The presenters will be prepared to respond to questions and also be ready to ask questions of the audience participants.
