UNCG hosted conference of area library paraprofessionals

On May 13, more than 100 individuals from Greensboro and the surrounding counties, converged on Elliott University Center to take part in the first-ever Triad Area Library Association Paraprofessional Conference. It was titled “Academic Libraries: Staying Relevant in Times of Change.” Supported by the University Libraries at UNCG, the Z. Smith Reynolds Library at Wake Forest University and the Carol Grotnes Belk Library at Elon, the aim of the conference was to enhance the development of library paraprofessionals by providing workshops, presentations, discussion groups, and networking opportunities. Sessions focused on such topics as customer service, emerging technologies, and disaster preparedness. In addition, the director of UNCG’s Career Services, Patrick Madsen, gave lunchtime talk titled “The Intentional Career Brand,” about the importance of discovering what you want to do, where you want to do it, and how to market yourself to prospective employers.
