We’ve just picked up from the Califa Newsletter, the news that the College of Dupage is producing two free (to all) webcasts, sponsored by ALA, on June 2 and June 9th from 9am to 10:30am California time.
The first program on June 2 is Information Literacy: Reaching At-Risk High School and Community College Students with John Berry and a panel of school, community college and academic librarians.
The second program on June 9 is Confronting the Crisis in Library Education with ALA President Michael Gorman. Mr. Gorman and a panel of librarians and educators will explore the questions: Are today’s library education programs doing an adequate job of training the next generation of librarians? Is there really a crisis in library education? Library educators, administrators seeking qualified candidates, recent library school graduates looking for that first job, and current or future library school students, are invited to share their unique perspective on this topic that is of vital interest to our profession.
