There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning. Jiddu Krishnamurti 

We are engaged in a profession and typically work for organizations that are committed to lifelong learning. On Thursday, February 25, #medlibs are gathering on Twitter to talk about education. 

Here are some questions that we may discuss.
  • If you were to enter graduate school today, knowing how you would work today, what courses do you believe graduate schools of library and information science should be teaching now?
  • What do you need to learn now to be more successful in your current position?
  • What do you need to learn now to move into your dream job?
  • What intangible skills or knowledge does it take to be effective as a librarian in your organization?
  • If you supervise, what skills and knowledge do you believe are lacking in new graduates?
  • What do you want to learn now?
  • What are your learning goals and how do you achieve them?

Some articles related to trends in libraries and education.
