I have made it halfway through my first semester and I find that keeping up with professional development is a time consuming task. There is so much information out there. Over the past couple of months, I have received several emails from other new academic librarians in their first professional job like myself. Professional development is always a topic that is mentioned and I would invite input from librarians with more experience as to how you manage it. I attempt to read a few journals regularly, receive digests from listservs, read blogs, and talk with colleagues. I have also attended the American Library Associationâ€™s Annual Conference in New Orleans and thought that the presentations, poster sessions, and speakers were another source of information. Is there anything I am missing? Are there any other sources of information that you keep track of? Do you attend many conferences? Are their specific publications or sources that have proved themselves more useful than others? For those of us who are new to the profession, I think that dialogues with more experienced colleagues are a great source of information and know-how. After all, exchange of information is a two-way street. The other librarians that I work with have been tremendously helpful as I get through the first year and learn the ropes. I would value input and advice from other members of the profession.
