Read that subject line anyway you want to, but be sure you compare the
APLA 2003 <http://staff.library.mun.ca/apla/> conference with the Facing
the Challenges of an Aging Workforce conference
APLA 2003, The View from here/Vue d'en haut, has not only sessions on
aging (staff and patrons), but also many opportunities to meet with your
"old" friends. And what a bargain, it is in St. John's this year. Check it
#203 A keynote address by Dr. Fiona Black who will reflect on continuing
education and how you encourage lifelong learning in people who are just
beginning, in the middle of, or nearing the end of, their careers.
#204 The world of grants for libraries and archives: opportunities and
pitfalls - grants can produce new projects and new opportunities for those
who have "done it all."
#211 Initiatives in staff development - theory and practice - the title
says it all.
#302 Rockets and rocking chairs: services to seniors in the 21st century -
don't forget our patrons are aging too.
