Recordings from Recent CCB Brown Bags
We've created a new resources guide on the CCB website so that you can find recordings from the CCB events you might have missed. Take a look at the CCB Events Recordings page to find audio from Katrina Spencer's "Conference-Going and Networking 101" Brown Bag or from Georgann Burch and Betty Bush's "Common Core for Librarians" talk. We hope you find this resource helpful!
In conjunction with Katrina's talk, we've also created a page with Upcoming Conferences that may be of interest to the CCB community.

The Center for Children’s Books (CCB) at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) is a crossroads for critical inquiry, professional training, and educational outreach related to youth-focused resources, literature and librarianship. The Center’s mission is to facilitate the creation and dissemination of exemplary and progressive research and scholarship related to all aspects of children’s and young adult literature; media and resources for young (age 0-18) audiences; and youth services librarianship.
In partnership with The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books—an authoritative analytic review journal—the Center aims to inspire and inform adults who connect young people with resources in person, in print, and online. The Center sponsors activities and hosts interdisciplinary research projects involving both theory and practice. In its dual role as research collection and educational community, the Center has national impact on the future of reading and readers.
