Carlsbad, CA – August 4, 2014) EOS International will be hosting a webinar on Thursday, August 14, 2014 at 11:30am PT / 2:30pm ET, featuring guest speaker Kate Arnold, 2014 SLA President. This special webinar is titled "5 Critical Attributes for Special Librarians to Evolve and Stay Relevant." Between Google circumventing in-depth research, dealing with budget constraints, understanding the changes driving customer behavior, and other challenges, librarians are facing a new world in which they must be adaptive.

The webinar will feature findings from a study co-authored by the Financial Times and SLA (Special Library Association), of which Kate Arnold was a chief participant. Drawing from her experience as SLA President in 2014, many years as a professional in special libraries, and findings of this study, the event will focus on 5 essential attributes responsive special librarians are making in an ever-changing landscape.

"We're excited to have Kate Arnold speak at this webinar," said Robert Storer, Marketing Manager at EOS. "I think it's really great for the community. It's a good opportunity for librarians to benefit from her 20 years of experience as a special librarian, whether they're part of SLA or not. This is a unique opportunity to get the nuts and bolts of the changes and adaptability needed to stay relevant—and it's from an industry thought-leader." (Those desiring to attend this event may register here.) This webinar is an extension of the existing EOS webinar series. Hosted at least once per month, EOS International holds educational webinars from industry thought leaders on topics for knowledge professionals to learn the latest innovations and practices in their profession.
