DIY Librarianship

Professional Development, Continuing Education, and Current Awareness

Abstract

This chapter explores methods of professional development for copyright librarians and describes a number of strategies for practice. The chapter encourages copyright specialists to adopt a proactive attitude toward their own professional development through continuing education and current awareness resources. Professional development and continuing education may be formal or informal, but given the paucity of comprehensive and sustained preservice preparation for the role of copyright librarian, their necessity is clear.
