INVALUABLE NEW ELECTRONIC NEWSLETTER AND DATABASE RESOURCE HELPS INFORMATION PROFESSIONALS BUILD THEIR CAREER SKILLS AND CONTACTS has just launched a brand new service for information professionals. The Library Events website provides up to date details of all the important events they need to know about, to enhance their careers and to build up their professional skills and contacts.

The service consists of a current awareness database, which is fully searchable, and a monthly newsletter, called LIS Events. It includes:

Training courses from a range of organizations, to help you plan the next steps in your career development program

Conferences, to keep you up to date with new developments and current thinking

Exhibitions and trade shows, where you stay informed about all the new products relevant to your library and organization, and build up your contacts

Library association meetings, where you can keep up to date with what's going on in your profession and meet your professional colleagues

National book and library events in many countries

You can see the website and the current awareness database at - where you can also sign up for the newsletter.

The Library Events service uses EventKeeper(TM), a software package for creating online calendars and event listings, which can be operated by anyone who can use a web browser.

Perfect for libraries, EventKeeper is produced by Plymouth Rocket, Inc. and is designed for organizations who want to use their websites to inform their users about current events, but don't have in-house experts to create and maintain a custom Web calendar.
