I am pleased to share an article I published on the website of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) with Sueli Mara Ferreira, a colleague from the University of Brazil and IFLA LAC, about our teamwork to present a free professional development online series for Latin America and the Caribbean in Portuguese and Spanish. Below, I have included an excerpt. Read the entire article here.
More than 1,700 librarians and information professionals participated of anew series of free webinars presented in November 2014, in Portuguese and Spanish for Latin America and the Caribbean by IFLA’s Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning Section (CPDWL) and the New Professionals Special Interest Group (NPSIG) in partnership with the Latin American and Caribbean Section (LAC) and the School of Information, Documentation and Library Sciences of the Faculty of Philosophy, Sciences and Literature of the University of São Paulo, Ribeirão Preto Campus (USP) in Brazil.
The webinars represent an expansion of the successful series “New Professionals Global Connection: best practices, models and recommendations” held since 2012 in English by CPDWL and NPSIG in partnership with the American Library Association.
