Continuing Education

Loyola Marymount University and its partners, the San Jose State University School of Library and Information Science and the Statewide California Electronic Library Consortium, will implement a professional development program and support system for 63 novice academic and research librarians, especially working post-MLS/MLIS librarians. The program is designed to increase the number of librarians with specific skills in conducting research and disseminating the results. Each year 21 librarians will receive instruction in research design and a full year of support to complete a research project at their home institutions. This includes a nine-day, summer Institute for Research Design in Librarianship, supplemented with pre-institute learning activities and a personal learning network that provides ongoing mentoring.
