Dominican University and Chicago Public Library Offer Workshop on 21st Century Skills

Washington, DC—The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) is pleased to announce that Dominican University and the Chicago Public Library will present a workshop on “21st Century Skills: How Does Your Organization Stack Up?” The workshop will explore concepts introduced in the IMLS report “Museums, Libraries and 21st Century Skills.”
