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….
