Library Professional Development Committee


The Woodward Library Professional Development Committee identifies and explores learning opportunities for library faculty and staff aimed at developing new skills and acquiring new knowledge. The Committee helps determine the professional development interests and needs of library personnel by identifying external opportunities to gain professional skills, while striving to create in-house training where personnel can share their own knowledge and expertise with peers. The Committee solicits input from library personnel about the types of professional development and training sessions to offer. The Professional Development Committee will meet at least monthly and on an as needed basis.
