Resources: Three Sites for Free Webinars

Whether you’re just starting out in teen librarianship or have been at it awhile, we can all use a burst of fresh ideas every now and then. Webinars are a great way to learn about new topics from colleagues who have expertise, and can be especially useful if you can’t make it to a conference or your work can’t pay for more in-depth training. We’ve pulled together three resources for free webinars to supplement your professional development.
