Professional Development Resources for Librarians: Home

Join the Librarian Corps!

The Librarian Corps is a new initiative through the Institute for Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Learning and Teaching  (ICLRLT).

During our strand at the summer Summit, we will establish a group of NM library workers, a Librarian Corps, who will work together to design an Open Educational Resource (OER) area that specifically benefits northern NM patrons with culturally relevant, place-based resources. 

The OERs will be shared with other library workers, including coaching and cross-training.  Certificate of completion, stipend, room and board and mileage provided. See attached invitation for details. 

Please contact Melissa Morrow, OER and Community Outreach Librarian, Thomas C. Donnelly Library, New Mexico Highlands University,, or (505) 454-3134, for more information.

Hope to see you beautiful Las Vegas, New Mexico!
