Professional Development

Librarian instruction sessionHow Do Our Librarians Accomplish So Much?

They offer

  • Research Clinics on advanced database searching and specialized research software
  • Teach more than half the student body
  • Co-teach advanced sections with faculty
  • Create online tutorials
  • Manage and support electronic services
  • Serve on multiple University and national committees
  • Publish and present at state and national conferences

Staying current requires support: the opportunity to attend conferences, workshops and have release time to develop projects and write grants.

Enhancing these opportunities is an investment in progress.
