Continuing Education Committee

Welcome to the Continuing Education Page!
We hope you check this page for information about upcoming seminars and conferences our committee sponsors. We work to provide ULA members with continuing education opportunities throughout Utah.

To represent ULA on continuing education issues in Utah; to coordinate with the Utah State Library Division in implementing the continuing education directives of the Statewide Advisory Committee on Library and Information Services; to recommend to the Board of Directors specific proposals for association support and expenditures for continuing education opportunities for ULA members; to foster continuing education involvement by ULA members at the annual conference and at least one regional workshop; and to prepare and administer periodic needs assessment surveys.

We have an archive of past events we have sponsored and handouts related to presentations we have made.  Please follow this link for more information.
We have pictures from our last Fall Conference in Utah State’s Merrill-Cazier library! See them in the file list below.

The committee should consist of a chairperson appointed by the vice- president/president-elect of ULA, the Continuing Education Coordinator of the Utah State Library Division will be invited to serve as an ex official member, and at least five additional members representing as many types of libraries as possible.
