Keeping Current: Low to No-Cost Professional Development Opportunities in June

adrithbIt’s already the end of May, INALJ visitors! Can you believe it? I know I can’t.
 
Here is a list of excellent free webinars open to all for the month of June. The eagle-eyed reader will note that they’re all in the first half of the month; this may be the result of the hosts’ preparation for ALA Annual Conference at the end of June. Look for an update near the end of May or early June with any additional professional development opportunities available in the second half of the month, for those #ALAleftbehind!
 
And if you’re going to Chicago, please stop and say “hi!” if you see me in the convention center.
 
On to the webinars!

Naomi House, MLIS, is the founder and publisher of the popular webzine and jobs list INALJ.com (formerly I Need a Library Job). Founded in October 2010 with the assistance of her fellow Rutgers classmate, Elizabeth Leonard, INALJ’s social media presence has grown to include Facebook (retired in 2016), Twitter and a LinkedIn group, in addition to the interviews, articles and jobs found on INALJ.com. INALJ has had over 19.5 Million page views and helped thousands of librarians and LIS folk find employment! Through grassroots marketing, word of mouth and a real focus on exploring unconventional resources for job leads, INALJ grew from a subscription base of 20 friends to a website with over 500,000 visits in a month. Naomi believes that well-sourced quantity is quality in this narrow job market and INALJ reflects this many new jobs published daily. She has also written for the 2011, 2012 & 2013 LexisNexis Government Info Pro. She presents whenever she can, most recently thrice at the American Library Association's Annual Conference as well as breakout talk presenter at OCLC EMEA in Cape Town, South Africa and as a keynote speaker at the Virginia Library Association annual meeting, at the National Press Club, McGill University, the University of the Emirates, Dubai, MLIS program and the University of Hawaii at Manoa. She was a 2013 Library Journal Mover & Shaker and has served on the University of Maryland iSchool Board from 2014-2017.

She runs her husband’s moving labor website, KhanMoving.com, fixes and sells old houses and assists her husband cooking delicious Pakistani food as well. She has heard of spare time but hasn’t encountered it lately. She pronounces INALJ as eye-na-elle-jay.

    Excellent professional development opportunities!
    My blog, Learning Beyond, also has quite a few no/low cost online learning opportunities — I’d like to develop a calendar-like interface, but for now you could just search by the month to see all the upcoming possibilities. http://beyondlearning-md.blogspot.com/
