Musselman-McNairy Exchange

Librarians from Gettysburg College traveled to Millersville to discuss how they employ students as peer research mentors and research fellows. Millersville wanted to know more about Gettysburg’s development of a peer learning community and Gettysburg was interested in the training model for Millersville’s Research Fellows. In the weeks before the visit, both groups developed a 10 minute presentation that addressed the other’s key question.  Discussion and brainstorming followed the presentations and both groups left the day with action items.  Read more about this exchange, the agenda and outcomes here.

Consider spending the day with colleagues at another ACLCP library.  Here’s an example of something you can do to provide inexpensive professional development.  Travel and lunch are covered by an ACLCP grant like this one.
