Supporting Our Graduate Programs–A Successful Event

Yesterday, the GSDG held a regular meeting at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism on 40th Street. It was decided that “lightning talks” would be held where people would talk for 3 minutes about how their library was supporting graduate students. Questions and answers followed each presentation. Representatives from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Manhattan College, the CUNY Journalism School, and New York University spoke.

The highlight was the presentation by Bonnie L. Fong and Krista White from Rutgers University, who talked about the survey they did of their graduate students and what they learned.

A good (and informative) time was had by all.

Meet and Greet @ Bobst Library

The GSDG’s meet and greet meeting was held at Bobst Library on December 12, 2013 from 4-6. It was a great success, in no small part to Scott Collard, the co-chair who led the discussion.

Scott was able to excite and tease out ideas for what the 13 attendees wanted to see in future meetings. Wine, cheese, soft drinks, and other snacks overflowed as attendees got into the party mood and got down to deciding exactly what the GSDG would do in the near future.
