Libraries Thriving Learning Community Now Accepting Applications

Libraries Thriving Learning Community—Fall 2011

Organized by Credo Reference and LYRASIS


Could you use a sounding board for a project at your institution that you have always wanted to accomplish?


Would you like to join a community where colleagues challenge and support one another's learning and growth toward shared e-resources goals?


Do you want to engage in conversations and actions—to become critical colleagues—to transform what it means to have a thriving library?


If you answered YES to any of these questions, you are ready to become a member of a professional learning community organized by Credo Reference and LYRASIS.

The Libraries Thriving Learning Community invites us to think about and engage on key current issues with the aim of developing approaches, solutions and responses that demonstrate the effectiveness of individual library professionals as well as libraries’ effectiveness within the institutions of which they are a part. From October through December 2011 community participants will engage in a variety of interactions, primarily online, with occasional in-person meetings, to explore and experiment with the kinds of individual and institutional actions needed for libraries to thrive. Sharing a vision for collaborative, creative, and positively-focused libraries and library professionals, Credo Reference and LYRASIS are providing facilitation and technical support for this unique community.
