The VT Libraries Professional Development Portal offers frequent, timely, and relevant information for assisting faculty and staff in staying up to date with current trends and opportunities. Training events, conferences, webinars, and CFPs will be posted regularly. Use the tabs at the top to view lists of recommended conferences, webinars, publications, and other sites. The Applause tab lists recent contributions made to the profession by VT Libraries faculty and staff.

If you would like to submit a CFP or other related call for participation, please contact me, Rebecca Miller, directly (millerrk at vt dot edu). Expired CFPs and past deadlines are removed as soon as possible in order to keep this resource current. Many thanks!
