Description

Jones and Stephens discuss the LIS Professional Commons (LISPC), a model for professional development. LISPC is technology agnostic, with its framework built around individually networked strata tied to and identified by their social media platforms that influence how the commons acts in those dedicated areas across the social Internet. Participation in the LISPC may be different for LIS students, new librarians, current professionals, and virtually anyone can join the commons, but a guide is offered on how to navigate through the LISPC. Hiring an active participant in the LISPC, the authors argue, is all-around beneficial as the LIS professional will bring to the workplace a community with continuous professional development opportunities and experiences that administrators and managers should promote.
