Free Webinars 5/18: Project Management 101 and Unconference Planning

The Georgia Library Association is pleased to announce the May 2011 sessions of the Carterette Series Webinars. The series highlights trends, innovation, and best practices in Georgia Libraries. The webinars feature Georgia speakers, but registration is open to anyone, anywhere. Topics are chosen to be of interest to employees of all library types, and each session is approved for one Georgia Continuing Education (CE) contact hour.
