I’m taking part in the 23 Things for Professional Development course to learn about new technology and how it can be used to benefit the public library. Currently, I’m a Library Assistant II for Lincoln City Libraries. I have worked in public libraries for almost 6 years now, and I recently graduated with my MSLS from Clarion University. I would like to use my experience, education, and skills to become a youth services librarian. I hope to use the information I learn in this course to strengthen my skills to become a better employee and candidate for a professional position.
I am most looking forward to Week 12- Presenting Information. I have not had much experience presenting in a formal setting and would like to learn about resources and techniques to improve my presentation skills. I am anticipating learning something every week, from my own experiences and reading about the experiences of others. Blogging about these experiences will motivate me to keep my blog current.
