January 28, 2010–over 30 attendees gathered to join LILRC staff in kicking off its 2010 Continuing Education Program at the Plainview Old-Bethpage Public Library. A terrific mix of academic, public, school, and special librarians gathered for the event and had the opportunity to network prior to the program over light refreshments.
Afterward, Susanne Markgren, Digital Services Librarian at Purchase College Library, SUNY, presented, Create an Online Portfolio: Improve Your Skills of Self Promotion, which included an overview of what to include on your online portfolio, the various services available to post your portfolio (free and paid services), and she provided samples of her own portfolio using PBWorks and Google Sites.

Thanks to all who attended and to the Plainview Old-Bethpage Public Library for hosting the event.
