Utilizing Partnerships to Expand Professional Development Opportunities Worldwide


While partnerships have been an instrumental part of the library’s success in serving the needs of their communities, they now offer librarians profound opportunities for developing new competencies and skillsets that strengthen their careers. This webinar will highlight various examples of international initiatives that not only expand professional development opportunities for librarians, but also connect them to dynamic and globally-based professional networks.

Success stories, challenges, and the impacts of these partnerships will be discussed.
