ACRL/IS Professional Education Committee

Charge

Through the maintenance of key documents, the committee encourages the development of professional education for library school students and librarians with instruction-related responsibilities. The committee is responsible for annually updating the IS list of "Library Instruction Courses Offered by Accredited Master's Programs in Library and Information Studies" including verifying current listings and researching new courses. The committee annually updates the IS list of "Sponsors of Continuing Education Programs for Library Instruction" by investigating current learning opportunities available in conferences, associations and institutes in both the United States and Canada.  Every three years the "Continuing Education Needs and Interest Survey" is conducted among the membership for feedback about professional education.
