Professional Series

Log in

The NDLA Professional Series is a series of online professional development meetings for NDLA members. Meetings are held four times a year and will focus on semiannual topics broken down into discussions over pre-assigned resources (journal articles, videos, podcasts, etc.) and speakers.

Spring 2024 sessions will occur in March and May. Fall 2024 session months and dates to be announced at a later date.

Speaker sessions may be recorded (with the permission of the speaker), but general discussions will not be to allow fuller discussion about potentially difficult topics. 

Past Sessions

Current Topic

Let's talk a bit about slow librarianship. What is it? How can we put slow librarianship practices in place to make the workplace better for all library employees? (Note that although the name includes the term "librarianship," the concepts and practices are inclusive of all library workers.)
