Circulating Ideas: Creating a Personal Learning Network for Librarians
The field of librarianship is evolving at a rapidly-increasing pace, making it more important than ever to keep up with new ideas and trends. A Personal Learning Network (PLN) is one of the best ways to stay on top of new developments. Join Steve Thomas as he talks about what a PLN is and explores ways you can create and curate your own PLN to increase your professional knowledge base and connect with your peers.
Steve Thomas is an assistant branch manager at Gwinnett County Public Library just outside of Atlanta, where he has worked for almost six years. He started his library career at Emory University but ultimately decided public libraries better matched his sensibilities. He is also the creator and host of Circulating Ideas, the librarian interview podcast, which he has been producing since June 2011.
