In-person and online attendees may attend the whole workshop or a portion of it. Please register here on L2 if you plan to attend.

The RSA Public Library workshop's agenda is posted at The purpose of the workshop is to discuss RSA topics that are relevant to public libraries, including circulation, cataloging, reports, system administration, special projects, and OCLC. Any public library staff member who would like a “refresher” on RSA operations is encouraged to attend this workshop. Please note RSA staff will not provide in-depth training during the RSA Workshop for Public Libraries. Check the L2 calendar for training sessions taught by RSA staff.

In addition to the topics on the agenda, there will be plenty of time to network with fellow public librarians and ask questions of RSA staff. Those who attend the workshop in-person at the RAILS East Peoria Service Center will enjoy complimentary snacks and lunch provided by RSA.

If you plan to attend in-person at the RAILS East Peoria Service Center, feel free to bring your laptop that has WorkFlows installed on it. (Please note you must install the most up-to-date version of the WorkFlows software on your laptop PRIOR to the workshop. RSA staff will not be able to provide WorkFlows installation assistance on the day of the workshop).

Print copies of the workshop packets will be available for those who attend in-person at the RAILS East Peoria Service Center. For those who will attend the workshop via Adobe Connect, the links to the workshop hand-outs will be posted to this L2 entry on Monday, October 22, 2012.

Continuing professional development units (CPDUs) will be available for you to receive credit for your participation in the RSA Workshop for Public Libraries. In-person attendees will complete the CPDU paperwork at the end of the workshop on October 23rd. If any Adobe Connect attendees would like to receive CPDUs, please contact Martha Troxell after the workshop. Let her know if you attended the whole workshop, or a portion of it. Martha will then send you the CPDU paperwork to complete.
