This year’s plenary speakers are Professor Sarah Aponte (CUNY Dominican Studies Institute), Dr. Brenda Greene (Medgar Evers College), and Dr. Christina Katopodis (Transformative Learning in the Humanities at the City University of New York).

Professional development is an integral component of librarianship. As a field that’s always evolving and that is intertwined with technology, librarians, library workers, and information professionals across related fields and disciplines often seek professional development opportunities that contribute to their professional growth. As the needs of users change, information professionals must adapt, share knowledge, and learn new skills. Changes in the field at large can also change the landscape of information work and shift the job responsibilities of library workers. A preoccupation with change (and the future) of the field, is itself the subject of critique and discussion both in LIS literature and within professional development and institutional contexts.

Please contact the co-chairs (Professors Nelson Santana and/or Derek Stadler at  or ) for further inquiries.

We look forward to seeing you at this years Institute!
