Discussion List

A closed Internet discussion group is a valuable component of the program. Joan Ruelle, Elon University, maintains a closed online discussion group (hosted by Elon) available only to participating first-year college library directors and program alumni. One of the chief advantages of this discussion group is the collegiality of the participants. Since they have all gone through a similar experience, questions and comments are freely put forth to this supportive audience. Also, since the questions go to a closed group, confidentiality is sacrosanct.
