Professional Organizations related to Library Media or Curriculum

Professional Development Opportunities

Links to professional organizations are included here because most professional groups include programs, conferences, journals, or other scholarly readings that will benefit the librarian in building his/her own personal learning network (PLN) for professional growth and development. CCBOE librarians are encouraged to participate in some kind of professional organization to keep abreast of new and innovative practices in the field of library media, school libraries, and information technologies.
