Learning Round Table (LearnRT) | The American Library Association Archives

Name: Learning Round Table (LearnRT)
Variant Name: Continuing Library Education Network and Exchange Round Table (CLENE)


Historical Note:

The Continuing Library Education Network and Exchange Round Table (CLENERT) was established by the American Library Association Council during the Association's Mid-Winter 1984 Convention in Washington, D.C. (1). The Round Table had been an independent organization of the same name since 1976 (2).

The organization has a two-part mission statement:

1. To provide equal access to continuing education opportunities available in sufficient quantity and quality over a substantial period of time to insure library and information personnel and organizations the competency to deliver quality library and information science service to all;

2. To create an awareness and a sense of need for continuing education of library personnel on the part of employees and individuals as a means of responding to societal and technological changes (3).

The Round Table's official publication is the CLENExchange (4).

The round table was renamed the Learning Round Table (LearnRT).
