10 Ways to Keep Up To Date
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is
vital to keep your knowledge up to date with
changing trends and technologies and to
further your career in library and information
services.
1. 1.Talk to your colleagues
Learn from their experiences. This type
of informal learning can happen
spontaneously when you see something
new or interesting happening in your
workplace.
2. Keep up to date with
current library literature
Try and build time into your day/week
to peruse the latest library publications
and keep up to date with emerging
trends.
3. Create and curate social
media accounts
Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Linkedln
are all great ways of keeping up to date
with library developments and also
engaging with other library
professionals.
4. Visit other libraries
It’s always interesting to see how other
libraries operate and pick up new ways
of doing things.
