ProQuest has announced the launch of Graduate Education Program (GEP), a new service that combines several of its popular development programs for library schools into a single resource. GEP includes programs from ProQuest and business units such as Dialog, and offers a single point of access to teaching tools, training and development opportunities, and awards and internships within a free social networking site called “Discover More Corps.”
“It’s now simpler for librarians—and librarians in training—to access the breadth of what we offer,” Maria Ziemer, Global Manager, ProQuest Graduate Education Program, said in a release. “And, we were inspired to add more options because we saw gaps we could fill.”
- Free access to resources from ProQuest that enable students to learn, explore, and gain experience using industry-leading databases and technology before they encounter them on the job.
- Free curriculum development resources that help instructors update existing classes with current information or jump-start planning for new courses.
- Customized training and class presentations from ProQuest’s expert staff, available either on-site or through webinars.
- ProQuest’s Student Trainer Internship Program, which recruits select graduate LIS students for electronic resources training.
- Networking through the Discover More Corps site that enables users from around the globe to connect to share best practices and advice.
- A variety of awards and scholarships.
