Advanced Studies in Partnerships: Building bridges between MLIS students and the Community Librarians Without Borders

This poster session was developed by: Katherine van der Linden & Xenia Kurguzova; Librarians Without Borders

McGill is a group of socially minded students in the McGill School of Information Studies. By working in a partnership with the Native Friendship Centre of Montreal, students have a chance to develop their professional skills while benefiting the community. The main goal of this project is to create a resource centre that will respond to the needs of the aboriginal community of Montreal, as well as of students from Quebec’s CEGEPs and universities. One of the primary tasks here is the development of a classification scheme that will be culturally appropriate yet accessible to our clients.
