Online Programs Discussion Forum January 2024: what web-based program would help new librarians the most?

    Hello NMRT Members!

    As the Online Programs Committee gears up for hosting a webinar for new-and-early career librarians, we want to hear from you!

    • What sort of online programs for new librarians would you like to see that you haven't seen being offered anywhere? 
    • What webinar or program do you wish you'd had access to when you first started out as a library worker? 
    • What topic do you think needs more attention that maybe doesn't get enough in traditional library school education? 

    Let us know what you'd like to see!

    In my library program I wish I had a short class or webinar that explained how to obtain a library job with only my graduate coursework experience and how to write a library cover letter as they differ from other industries.
