One of the roles of the RUSA Professional Development Committee is to solicit and evaluate proposals for professional development webinars that support excellence in the delivery of general library services and materials, and the provision of reference and information services, collection development, readers’ advisory, and resource sharing for all ages, in every type of library.

The RUSA Professional Development Committee welcomes proposals for webinars of one to three hours. The Committee recommends 60 to 90 minutes as ideal. All webinars will be hosted by RUSA and delivered using the current webinar software in use by RUSA.
