The Idaho Commission for Libraries will host its first online conference -- Libraries = Learning Organizations --on May 14, 2009 from 9 AM to 12 Noon MDT.

Registration for Libraries=Learning Organizations is now open.

How do libraries stay lively and nimble in times of constant change? Transitioning the library into a learning organization can help your team to thrive in this environment. A learning organization is…”characterized by a flat structure and customer-focused teams ... acquiring knowledge and innovating quickly to survive and thrive in a rapidly changing environment."

Breakout Sessions:
• Do You Want More Rewards? presented by Dr. Richard Wilson, Associate State Librarian, Idaho Commission for Libraries
• Using Communities of Practice presented by the University of Idaho Library Action Team

Who should attend? Library directors, staff, trustees and volunteers! Everyone is involved in creating a learning organization. Join the exploration of Libraries = Learning Organizations and learn how you might use various tools to enhance your library action team!

For more information see Libraries=Learning Organizations.

Join your colleagues as we begin to explore this very important concept!
