Another learning opportunity is available from the Special Libraries Association 2015 Annual Conference. Attending the conference will give you access to the connections, resources, products, and services that matter to your profession. The continuing education courses are full of great opportunities to enhance your skills.

One specific opportunity to highlight is a Master Class called Mastering the Art of User Experience. It’s time to rethink what we know about gathering user data, going beyond surveys and other traditional methods to engage our users in deep conversations around the way they do research in order to develop tools and library resources that support user needs. This session will show you new ways to collect data, understand the stories, and sort the data into actionable items.

The early bird discount expires today so if you haven’t registered, don’t hesitate.
