Professional Development: PNC/MLA Symposium 2018 Support

As a MLS candidate and graduate intern, the conference will serve as a way for me to learn techniques and strategies to better serve our patrons. I hope to become a Reference and Instruction Librarian, so the CE sessions will allow me to learn different approaches to daily tasks and how to better market our electronic resources to patrons. This conference also hosts events that present opportunities to meet and connect with other librarians from other parts of the country. The poster presentation sessions are where I plan to present my work within my library system and share how my library tackled collection development strategies for our e-book collection. In those sessions, I hope to build my skills in public speaking while also showcasing my research and assessment skills.
