What is LPSSRT?
The Library Paraprofessional and Support Staff Round Table is for library employees who work in Staff positions (i.e. support staff, paraprofessionals, library technicians, library assistants, library associates, para-librarians, clerks). This group offers a forum to air concerns and share ideas for greater cooperation between Librarians and Staff members, to offer training and professional development support to library staff, and to assist other staff workers in their efforts to improve the library they work in.
