Connections and Networking

NETSL has played a key role in my career as a technical services librarian in New England. Most valuable have been the networking opportunities to connect with colleagues from around the region who are involved in similar work with whom I can share perspectives, dilemmas, and bounce ideas off of.

Professional Involvement

This is my short testimonial in favor of NETSL. Before I found NETSL and its conference, I was reliant on national conferences to meet and talk to those involved in technical work relating to management and discovery of electronic resources in the Northeast. Now I have a place to go to be updated on developments in these areas by the people I serve. As a result, my professional activities are more relevant to the libraries in the region.

Professional Development

NETSL continually provides workshops, keynote speakers and poster sessions on topics of interest to catalogers, metadata specialists and technical services librarians of all types. It has given me continued education in practical and technical aspects of cataloging that typically are not offered in MLS programs and schools – and this education is very much needed by all of us in our profession.

Making a Difference for Libraries

When I returned to public libraries after over 25 years working in law libraries, I wanted to find a place to connect with colleagues and was eager to learn about exciting ideas and changes other libraries had instituted. Attending my first NELA conference in October, 2012 met all my expectations. Challenging and innovative programs gave me ideas that I use at my library.
