Training Request Form

Sara Zettervall, MLIS, founding Trainer and Consultant at Whole Person Librarianship, is available to provide trainings, conference sessions, and ongoing consultation on issues in library-social work collaboration. Clients include libraries, library systems, and state conferences in Wisconsin, North Carolina, Florida, Michigan, Illinois – and Victoria, Australia!

Philosophy of Instruction:  I believe in the value of in-person learning, especially where human services skills are involved. My strong preference is to travel and provide on-site training; or, where that’s not a possibility, I recommend online training in an interactive series or course format. I’m happy to discuss options that will fit with your budget and needs, so please reach out with any questions.
