February FLIP Meeting

Hello everyone,

One of the great things about working in libraries is the opportunity, and the expectation, for continual learning. Come join us at this month’s FLIP meeting to hear about the variety of interesting professional development activities your colleagues have been engaged in.

When: 12-1pm Friday, February 14
Where: Room 306, UAA/APU Consortium Library
