ACRL Webcasts

For the second year, ACRL has given each state chapter two free webcasts! The webcasts will be streamed live to in-person groups in Atlanta and Athens, and any interested GLA members are welcome to attend. The sessions and session locations were chosen by popular vote by Academic Library Division membership last month. If you want to attend one or both sessions, you need to register only with GLA using these forms, not with ACRL.

Carterette Series Webinars

Highlighting Trends, Innovation, and Best Practices in Georgia Libraries

In June of 2010, members of the Georgia Library Association and the Georgia Public Library Service launched this bi-monthly educational webinar series. The series highlights trends, innovation, and best practices in libraries. The free sessions are open to interested parties from all geographic (and astral) locations. Topics are chosen to be of interest to students and employees from all library types, and each session is approved for one Georgia Continuing Education (CE) contact hour.

(Formerly known as the Wednesday Webinars, the series was renamed to honor founding member Pat Carterette, who passed away in January of 2011.)

Georgia Libraries Photo Contest

Annual event to document the impact of Georgia Libraries. How do libraries make a difference in people's lives? What would Georgia be like if there were no libraries? What valuable services do libraries provide that can easily go unrecognized and unappreciated? Those are just a few possibilities for people to think about when they unpack their camera bags at their library.
