Do No Harm: New Peace Corps Training Package for Sustainable Library Projects


SID/Development Information Workgroup: Brown Bag Lunch

Speakers: Marcy Carrel and Gail Wadsworth, librarians with extensive experience in training and development in the context of library projects throughout the world. Both speakers were Peace Corps Volunteers and are currently on staff at Peace Corps headquarters.

The “Sustainable Library Development Training Package,” developed by Peace Corps librarians Marcy Carrel and Gail Wadsworth with input from the field, was designed to provide Peace Corps Volunteers with standardized training and guidance for library activities. The training package, intended to promote best practices in sustainable library development, includes stand-alone sessions and a sequence of sessions that could be delivered as a one or two day workshop. The sessions can be used and adapted by others engaged in library projects or development projects with library components worldwide. The speakers will discuss the development of the training package, content and implementation.
