I’ll never learn reader’s advisory!

The fates are against me. My work has twice approved me for programs covering reader’s advisory through the Education Institute, but darn it, when I go to register they’re sold out!

First it was a 6 week online course on Reader’s Advisory (they don’t seem to keep up the info on past course, so I can’t link to who/what it was). Actually, that one I may have just tried to register too late. (hey, I had to wait for the paperwork!) Then today, I wanted to register for RA in a Day: A Readers’ Advisory Symposium. Again, I had to wait for the paperwork (our HR person was away).

So, it looks like I’ll never learn anything about Reader’s Advisory so I should just give up ever trying. Okay, fine, I’ll keep looking. Maybe there’ll be a session or two at the OLA Super Conference in January/February.

Of course, I realize one of the better ways to learn reader’s advisory is to do it, but do I need to remind you I don’t work in a library? One day, one day I’ll find a way in….

  1. Maybe speak to the HR person and see what can be done so it doesn’t happein the future?

  2. Sharron Smith from KPL is speaking at Waterloo Public Library tonight at 7 on her book Canadian Fiction: A Guide to Reading Interests. It is a great RA tool.

  3. I’ll be attending the RA in a Day next week – If there is anything facinating I will try to post for you.

  4. You should call OLA to see if they can squeeze you in – you never know there may be space if you beg…

  5. Heh, I was just promoted to Literacy and Readers’ Advisory Librarian at work and applied to go to “RA in a Day” as well. Until my workplace told me they didn’t have the cash to send me. :-p
