We are continually reminded that we need to be lifelong learners in this fast-paced world. We are asked to stay relevant and be on the cutting edge of new and emerging trends. But after formal education, where can we go for high quality, targeted learning opportunities that don’t cost an arm and a leg? What does self-education look like? How can it be obtained at a reasonable price, both in terms of money and time?

Join Cindy Hill, an “accidental learner,” in investing in your own self-learning by exploring online and in-person learning opportunities that are free or low-cost and available in the Bay Area and around the world.

Cindy is the manager of the Research Library and Bank Archives at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. She has worked as an information professional in a variety of industries including environmental, engineering consulting, and executive recruiting and high tech. She is once again learning a new subject discipline (Banking and Finance) while contributing her expertise and knowledge to the transformation of the library into a 21st century information center. Cindy is also current President of the San Francisco Bay Region chapter. She is a past-president of SLA and a SLA Fellow.
