GNARP Working Groups

Collection Development

Through its activities, the Collection Development Working Group will establish a framework for developing strategies and initiate projects to foster the growth of and increase access to German language print and electronic collections and lead to more effective collaboration among libraries. As part of these efforts, the Working Group can create virtual or in-person programmatic events. 

Engagement and Outreach

The Engagement and Outreach Working Group was initiated in 2020.  It promotes the involvement of existing members and builds partnerships with librarians in German-speaking countries through professional development virtual or in-person information exchanges. It administers awarding of professional development stipends to librarians or library staff from member institutions or personal GNARP members for conference travel, research projects, virtual conference attendance, or other professional development training. 

Librarian Exchanges (no longer active)

The Librarian Exchanges Working Group was active from 2007 to 2020 and aimed to promote and intensify the professional exchange between librarians from Germany and North America. The Librarian Exchanges Working Group encouraged GNARP members to present at conferences and take part in professional visits and exchange programs. All members of the professional community: professionals, faculty staff, and students were encouraged to participate in these exchanges.

The GNARP Workspace is a wiki tool that members can access to review and edit or add content.  It is open to GNARP members only.  Contact the CRL representative for information on access to the Workspace.
