About GSLIS Continuing Education


GSLIS offers a variety of workshops each term of interest to professionals in the library and information professions. Current and past workshop topics include taxonomies and controlled vocabularies, open access publications, business research, ILL, booktalkers, global arts bookmaking, book appraisal, Japanese anime and manga, library architecture, EAD, and many others. Continuing education programs are open both to practicing librarians/information professionals and current GSLIS students who wish to earn professional credits while they update skills and knowledge. Current Simmons GSLIS students and Simmons GSLIS alumni qualify for special discounted rates on continuing education programs.

Workshops are held on weekends or online for the convenience of practicing librarians and other professionals. We offer more than 35 half-day, full-day, or month-long workshops each semester at our Boston and Mount Holyoke campuses, online, and elsewhere throughout New England.
