Project Compass

Earlier this month I was lucky enough to go to Atlanta, Georgia for Project Compass, an initiative funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The goal of Project Compass is to help state librarians better serve patrons who are looking for employment. I was able to meet with librarians from all across the country and share ideas about how we can make the library an essential part of our patrons’ job search. It was interesting to see how much librarians in Mississippi share with librarians from North Carolina, West Virginia, or Indiana. We discussed the advantages to building closer connections with other state agencies, how to build a more user friendly websites, and how to create lasting networks between colleagues. We all agreed that helping patrons find employment is an important part of every library, especially during the current economic climate. I gained some great new ideas and a few new collaborators along the way and I hope we can make our services here at MLC more inviting for our patrons.
