Here is What Our Members are Saying

I just want to tell you that NEO-RLS is hitting it out of the park in the way of stellar programming that is perfect for our current needs.  We are very committed to professional development, and NEO-RLS provides us a great value."

Still Time to Register

A Note from the Continuing Education Coordinator

We held our Continuing Education Advisory Meeting at the end of August and I am so appreciative of the many suggestions and the active participation of the Advisory Group members.  I am currently working on coordinating our programs for January through June of 2022 using the ideas resulting from the meeting.  As I work through the many recommendations, I realized that some of the topics suggested are similar to webinar content in our Archive Webinar Library and I wanted to highlight those webinars for everyone as follows:

Instructional Design: Ideas and Techniques That You Can Begin Using Today
Instructional Design: Ideas and Techniques you can begin using today - Part 2
Just Right Books-How to use text complexity and reading levels in your readers' advisory for kids
How to teach students and patrons to fact-check like a pro
Project Management 101
Changing the Library World, One Subject Heading at a Time: Collaborating with the Cataloging Lab
Cataloging is not neutral: improving equity and inclusion in resource description
The Ohio Ethics Law: It's Everybody's Business!

Likewise, the Youth Services Advisory Group met in September and some great ideas came out of that meeting as well.  One of those ideas was to share passive programs in the NEO-RLS newsletter.  If you have a passive program you would like to share with your colleagues, please email me.  Together we are maximizing library potential.

From the State Library

Based on findings from the Institute of Museum and Library Services-funded Storytimes for School Readiness and Community Needs project (LG-96-17-0199-17), a multi-state study of public library storytime programs designed for preschool children, we have created two free, fully online, asynchronous modules designed to support librarians’ learning. Both modules are freely available and accessible through November 30, 2021. Registration is now open for the Collaborative Summer Library Program’s first-ever Summer Symposium. This FREE conference is for all library staff interested in summer programming.
