Librarian Exchange Professional Development Program
The Board's most recent grant program is designed to facilitate professional development and expertise among the library staff of SCAMeL member libraries by supporting visits to other SCAMeL libraries. A true exchange of staff members from different libraries is recommended but one-way or nonreciprocal funding requests are also entertained. SCAMeL will provide up to $2,000 per year to support this program.
The Librarian Exchange Professional Development Program enables librarians at the region's academic health sciences to familiarize themselves with the overall operations of libraries similar to their own, to research in greater detail how a specific issue is managed at these libraries, and to become acquainted with their colleagues throughout the SCAMeL region. In this way, it is hoped, the exchange of knowledge will be promoted and the basis for greater cooperation between libraries will be created.
