Mapping the Landscapes

Documenting the continuing education and professional development needs of staff in and across cultural memory institutions.

Mapping the Landscapes Project Infosheet

Continuing education and professional development (CE/PD) enables staff to increase knowledge and levels of practice so they may best serve their fields and communities.

Data can inform the development of targeted programming and partnerships. By assessing, documenting, and sharing comprehensive data on library, archives, and museums’ CE/PD needs, we aim to provide a view both within and across LAM sectors and organizational boundaries to help CE/PD hosts and trainers understand and respond to gaps, common issues, and innovations within the field at large.

Funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the "Mapping the Landscapes" effort has been undertaken by Educopia Institute in partnership with the Coalition to Advance Learning in Archives, Libraries, and Museums. It builds and strengthens community partnerships to document the continuing education and/or professional development (CE/PD) needs of staff in and across libraries, archives, and museums sectors.
