California Academic Reference Librarians Discussion Interest Group - South (CARL-DIG)

Registration is open for the 2021 CARLDIG-S Virtual Fall Program!

Nailed It Registration is open for Nailed It! Stories of Failure, Setbacks, and Where We Go From There Registration Deadline: Thursday, December 2nd, 2021

This program will offer an opportunity for library professionals to share their encounters with frustration or failure in areas of reference and the lessons they learned. Can you think of a time that, despite your best intentions, things just didnít go according to plan? This is the program for you! While we donít often discuss failure in our lives, it is important to normalize these conversations and embrace failure in our places of work. Failures mean we are experimenting, innovating, and creating new opportunities for growth. Through sharing our own stories, we can inspire others as they work through their own workplace challenges. So letís talk about failure!

When: Friday, December 3rd, from 9:00am to 1:00pm
Location: Online!

Registration Rate: Free!
