Every month, ALA units sponsor continuing education and skills building for library workers at all levels. From the newest staff member to the most experienced library administrator, ALA offers both fee and free CE that will dramatically impact the quality of work being done in your library. ALA makes a commitment to the people who take our CE courses. We commit to provide access to the best professional development resources and research while enhancing your learning and networking opportunities.
The field of librarianship is undergoing a fundamental transformation fueled by tremendous technological advances. The playing field has been leveled and the library must distinguish itself among many sources for information and enjoyment. These factors are putting increasing pressures on our human resources, wages and environment. Continuing education courses from ALA will help you stay abreast of developments in the field and meet the challenges of a changing professional landscape.
