Organization Manual:Professional Development Committee Chair

The committee is responsible for identifying, planning, and communicating professional development opportunities to the membership. It began as an ad hoc committee in March 2015, and then the executive committee voted in July to make it permeant starting in January 2016. A key rationale for the committee’s formation was to seek to expand professional development opportunities for Iowa academic librarians beyond information literacy and include other areas such as archives, technical services, interlibrary loan, access services, and leadership/management.

Librarian Exchange

The Iowa ACRL Professional Development Committee seeks to bring members together to help them learn from each other’s everyday best practices in the library. In the past, libraries such as Grand View, Simpson, University of Dubuque, and Loras College have all spent time together sharing ideas, asking each other questions, and shadowing during day-to-day operations.
