After last years’ successful workshop on professional identity we explored the messages we give out personally and professionally through our self and corporate branding and our digital and physical footprint.
This year we have shifted the focus to how library staff can gain confidence and professional development through the portrayal of superhero roles and gain a greater understanding of the impact, challenges and opportunities digital literacies and scholarship are offering students, researchers and professions alike.
Our speakers will explore digital literacy, changing work skills and roles in the library sector, CILIP’s role in offering professional development tools to keep abreast of these changes and the rise of digital scholarship and its challenges and opportunities for library professionals and their service users alike.
