A Few Questions • Are up-to-date in your profession? • Do you have time to attend workshops and conferences? • Do you have enough funding for PD? • Is the PD you receive relevant to your needs?
“The entire collection of people with whom you engage and exchange information, usually online.” (Klingensmith) Personal Learning Network
Why Build Your PLN? • Librarians often work solo • Distance and geography • New trends and issues • Lack of PD opportunities • Lack of funds for PD (Harland)
