period, we are opening the webinars up to any Oregon library staff who wish
to participate.

Our first webinar is “Critical Library Management” and will be presented by
Candise Branum, Director of Library Services at the Oregon College of
Oriental Medicine and Molly Gunderson, Access Services Manager at Portland
State University on Friday, January 11th from 2-3pm Pacific.

Registration is open to any Oregon library staff, but we are limited to 100
attendees in the session, so register soon!


We also plan to record the webinar and make it available on our website
after the live broadcast.

Meredith Farkas at acrlor at olaweb.org.
