Common Core for Libraries
Pre-Convention Workshop CANCELLED

It is with regret that CLA has decided to cancel the pre-conference workshop on Monday, April 21, 2014. Although there was great interest in the topic,  the time of the session did not attract a sufficient audience for a good workshop.  We regret this decision but look forward to seeing you at the convention.
