School Library Collect + Connect 2023-24



Full course description

NOTE: This is not a self-paced course. It is a series of chats/meet-ups that are scheduled throughout the 2023-24 school year. 

The School Library Collect + Connect Meet-Ups are an opportunity for school librarians (as well as other types of librarians and education professionals) from across South Dakota to gather, discuss, share, and learn. 

  • We will meet virtually via the BigBlueButton feature of Canvas. 
  • The meet-up format will vary on a monthly basis. Some months, we will discuss a specific topic. Other months, will be an open chat format. And, we will also have 2 guest speakers on special topics.
