Core e-Forum: Community of Practice (CoP): Supporting Cross-Sector Work

April 6-7, 2021

Moderated by Laura Sill, Peggy Griesinger, and Mikala Narlock

Please join us for an e-forum discussion. It’s free and open to everyone!

Registration information is at the end of the message.

Each day, discussion begins and ends at:

Pacific: 7 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Mountain: 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Central: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Eastern: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

As work within our libraries continues to be interconnected in terms of
services, systems, and skill sets, how do we cross unit, department or
organizational lines to build a network of support around areas of common
interest, learn from each other, and share knowledge, while still
respecting the administrative autonomy we all need to achieve operational
and service goals?

Join Laura Sill, Peggy Griesinger, and Mikala Narlock from the University
of Notre Dame in a conversation about Community of Practice (CoP). The
facilitators will share from research and their own experiences how the
learning structure of CoP can be an effective model for cross-sector work
and developing broad understanding within a given domain area.

What Is an e-Forum?

A Core e-forum provides an opportunity for librarians to discuss matters of
interest, led by a moderator, through the e-forum discussion list. The
e-forum discussion list works like an email listserv: register your email
address with the list, and then you will receive messages and communicate
with other participants through an email discussion. Most e-forums last two
to three days. Registration is necessary to participate, but it's free.

For information about upcoming e-forums, please visit
