Announcing the BLC's Expanding Knowledge Webinar Series

The BLC is pleased to announce a new professional development webinar series, the Expanding Knowledge Webinars​. These webinars offer an introduction to ​a variety of topics of interest to today’s academic and research libraries​. The Expanding Knowledge Webinars ​provide an overview of the basics for ​staff at all levels​​​​ ​on a topic they ​may not be familiar with from their daily work. Expanding Knowledge is designed to give a broad view of the topic to the non-practitioner and provide insight into a particular area of librarianship that allows library staff to understand its relevance ​to ​and application ​for​ their own work.

The series launched at the end of September, 2017, with a new webinar ​appearing ​each month​ throughout the academic year​. The webinars will be ​no more than 60 minutes with ample time for Q&A. ​Each webinar will be recorded and made available in the "Member Events" section of the BLC Website. ​
