Learning Together: Libraries, Archives, and Museums

In 2013 the Coalition to Advance Learning in Archives, Libraries, and Museums http://www.coalitiontoadvancelearning.org/ in the United States was established with the goal to work in deliberate coordination across organizational boundaries to devise and strengthen sustainable continuing education (CE) and professional development (PD) programs that will transform the library, archives, and museum workforce in ways that lead to measurable impact on our nation’s communities. Through working and learning together, the Coalition has produced a national agenda, a needs and supply assessment on professional development offerings, and a cross-sector framework on leadership competencies at multiple levels. The Coalition proposes to share its work and explore with the international professional community the ways that its collaboration model and its resources can inform related efforts and interests in other countries. We want to learn how the Coalition’s experiences and resources are applicable or can be adjusted internationally, to identify interest in creating a global community of cross-sector libraries, archives, and museum learners and to understand the needs of the workforce in these sectors and capacities of the professional development providers. As members of the Coalition, we plan to take what we learn to enhance our future work and explore collaborations.
