Sharing Success: Training Educational Leaders for Youth Services Librarianship


  • Christine Jenkins
  • Carol Tilley

Eight scholarships will be offered over three years to outstanding and diverse students admitted to the Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) program. This program will provide continuing education by offering outstanding library practitioners the opportunity to continue their education in a topic related to youth services, and by providing institutional support for these students to develop continuing education workshops for others. The two central goals of this project are: 1) leaders in the youth services library profession will provide quality continuing education for their practitioner peers in school and public libraries, and 2) leaders in the youth services library profession will meaningfully contribute to best practices and research in this field.
