Practitioners at all levels are invited to join a new continuing education
(CE) initiative at SLIS. Come learn with us, interact with our MLIS students,
and share your knowledge and experience!

access to Module 1 (History and Definition of User Services) in addition to
the online discussion of specific user groups.
