Staff Professional Development Workshop
Stephanie Davis from NC State leads a workshop on “Understanding the Multigenerational Workforce” at the July 20, 2017 staff professional development workshop.
Emergency Management and Security Workshops
Adjunct Faculty Workshops
Librarians’ Summer Workshops
Where can you find great ideas about how college and university libraries are adapting to the world of academic resources? Right in Raleigh in July when library staff members from the six CRC campuses come together to explore current issues. The first workshop took place in 2008 at NC State with the theme, “Beyond Books and Computers: The Importance of Working the Frontlines”, and in 2009 the group was at Saint Augustine’s College discussing “Managing Change in Libraries.” In 2010 it was “The Blended Library: Blending Teaching, Technology and Talent.” In July 2011 the theme was “Today’s Libraries: Building on the Best of the Old and New”. In 2012 the theme was “Inform Yourself—The New ABCs for Libraries: Assessment…Basics…Creativity” and in 2013 it was “The Complete User Experience: From the Right Chairs to the Right Help.” The emphasis is always on making sure staff from all the departments of the library profession take part. → See highlights from the 2017 workshop
CRC colleges and universities are all very involved in study abroad and other international programs. Joining together can be a real win/win as it was in the summer 2009 for a joint NC State and Saint Augustine’s experience in China. That collaboration involving the Confucius Institute at NC State has opened up more opportunities for Chinese language study at Saint Augustine’s University.

“I always leave these workshops with ”bright ideas” and try to figure out what we can do differently at our library.”
