The Capital Area Library District is purchasing 9 seats at the PLA Virtual Conference as an opportunity for continuing education.
We will host all of the sessions at CADM, in the training lab.
You will receive 1 CE credit for each session you attend.
There is a limit of 9 people in the room at any time, so signups are on a first come, first serve basis. Sign up FAST.
Please review the session details at this website: placonference.org/virtual_conference.cfm and then use the sign up link next to the corresponding title for each session. This post has the links to register for Day 1 sessions. Day 2 sessions are not yet finalized. Stay tuned for a second posting for Day 2 (March 26) with additional topics.
COST: Your library will be billed after the event $5 for each session each person from your location signs up for. Please try not to cancel at the last minute, because then we’d have empty seats.

Audio Poster Sessions: As an important element of the conference experience, ALL Virtual Conference attendees will receive access to explore our audio poster session which features PowerPoint presentations or Web tours with audio narration. As part of the last PLA National Conference (2008), we offered twenty poster sessions for attendees to peruse, on topics like Early Literacy, Website Accessibility, Cataloging Video Games, Public/Academic Library Collaboration, and Impact of Library Outreach. We also featured poster sessions on library programming like 52 Books – 52 Weeks, A.R.T. Revolution forTeens, Local History, and more.
Access to Archived Programming for One Year: All virtual conference registrants will have access to archived Virtual Conference programming for one year after the event. Maybe some of your staff can bring the information they learned back to train your local staff too!
