The UGA Libraries' Committee on Professional Development and Research (PDRC) fosters professional growth of the Libraries' faculty through:

Developing and promoting continuing education activities, encouraging and facilitating participation in local, state, regional, and national organizations; and promoting research interests and activities of the Libraries Faculty.

To accomplish these goals, PDRC sponsors programs of interest to the Libraries' faculty and periodically schedules professional forums, discussions and workshops. PDRC also administers the Libraries' mentoring program.
