Founded in 1994, Infopeople has a long history of providing high-quality professional development opportunities to the library community. Our team of experienced trainers and subject matter experts are dedicated to sharing their knowledge and expertise with librarians across the country, and our programs are designed to be engaging, interactive, and relevant to the real-world challenges faced by libraries today.
