Off to CALL!
The Canadian Association of Law Libraries is holding its annual conference next week in Windsor, Ontario. This will be my first time attending, and I will be participating as part of a panel on Legal Research and Writing.
I have never presented at a conference before, and this experience will be a little out of my comfort zone. Fortunately I have four experienced co-presenters, and the topic is one I’m very familiar with. I hope attendees are able to learn something from my experiences.
Shortly after I get back, the Manitoba Library Association will be having its annual conference. I”ve been on the programming committee for this conference, and I’ll be convening a couple of sessions. There’s lots for everyone from any sort of library.
There are many opportunities for professional development at any time of the year. I am constantly finding conferences I would love to attend in person. Sometimes I follow the twitter stream, if there is one, to get an overview of the content. (Click on the hashtag to get a stream of all posts tagged with it.) I think the hashtag for CALL will be #call2010.
What are you doing to upgrade your skills this year?
