2018 MLA webinars - which ones should WHSLA pursue funding for?

A post from Dora Davis, WHSLA Professional Development Coordinator

Hello WHSLA,

As you may have seen, MLA has released the dates and descriptions of all of their planned webinars for 2018.   As WHSLA Professional Development Coordinator, I am reaching out to all of you to help gather some information as I decide which webinars should receive priority for GMR funding applications on behalf of WHSLA. 

My goal is to apply for funding to host the webinars with the highest amount of interest first.  Since we can only apply for funding once per quarter as WHSLA, my secondary goal is to help facilitate code sharing with other organizations that may receive funding and have extra codes available since we are now able to share codes.  (As was the case with yesterday’s webinar and SWHSLs generous offer to share their extra codes with WHSLA members.)

You can see the list of the webinars and their descriptions here: 2018 MLA Webinars.  

Please take a moment to read the descriptions and then take the brief survey here:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/N2VMPWD 

Once you’ve read through the descriptions, the survey should only take you about 2 minutes. 

If you require any further information, feel free to contact me.
