My homework during my way from Copenhagen to Berlin

Mace said it’s just too easy to cycle 650 km, so he thought of a homework for us. We need to describe our favourite professional problem and to make a little strategy how we would solve it during Cycling for libraries.

The role of new professionals within national library associations

So here is my little homework:

Section of New Professionals in Latvia is implementing three main objectives:

1) Library advocacy and support of new professionals on a national and international level;
2) Organization of seminars, conferences and exchange trips;
3) Networking and international collaboration.

My aim is to ascertain how new professionals (LIS students and recently qualified professionals) can be involved in activities of national library associations, and whether national library associations support new professionals movement in their countries.

The main question is: What can be done to encourage recruitment and active involvement of new professionals in the library field and activities of national library associations?

Please help me to solve this mystery! Feel free to comment.. 😉

P.S. Here you may find Cyc4Lib homework list.
