CFLC Chronicles: Last Call CE Survey

The time is closing in on the CFLC Continuing Education (CE) Committee survey (previously described here). If you haven't already done so, please take a very few minutes before the end of this month to complete the CE survey found here ( and tell us what you REALLY think.

All library staff are encouraged to participate, since the more types of libraries and library personnel are represented, the broader and more realistic the picture of local needs will be.

If you have already completed the survey, thank you for your time, feedback, opinions, and ideas. You are helping CFLC help you!
