Library Paraprofessional & Support Staff Round Table (LPSSRT)

The purposes of the Library Paraprofessional and Support Staff Round Table are to:

  1. provide representation in the Utah Library Association for paraprofessionals and support staff working in Utah Libraries
  2. foster interaction between professional and paraprofessional librarians in discussion forums and mentoring programs
  3. provide a forum for discussion about the future of paraprofessionals and support staff in Utah Libraries

Come to our 2013 ULA Conference Program:  Details soon!

ULA Conference:  May 1 – 3, 2013, at the Utah Valley Convention Center

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.

Who can join?
Everyone!
