On Thursday, May 2, 2013, ASLD presented the program “Two Birds, One Stone: ePortfolios as Professional Development and Patron Programming”. In this presentation, Derek Stadler (Past President of ASLD) and Danielle Apfelbaum (President or ASLD) discussed the benefits of creating an electronic portfolio for both employed and job-seeking information professionals. Attendees received guidance on planning for the eportfolio, selecting materials, structuring content, and choosing a web-based platform. The presenters also discussed how librarians can translate their newly-acquired eportfolio skills into valuable patron programming. All materials from the presentation are available at the following online toolkit: http://eportfoliotoolkit.weebly.com/.
