Project SET: Skills, Empowerment, and Talent

For more information go to our LibGuide


Project SET is a professional learning cohort that supports the development of individual career goals and the exploration of other aspects of the library community. Every session provides the chance for participants to build knowledge, communication skills, connections, awareness, and confidence as an information professional. SET is a way to interact with other librarians by stepping out of the day-to-day routine and thinking about the bigger picture.

Project SET is an opportunity to work with librarians of all types throughout the Massachusetts community who are passionate about the profession. It is a program that inspires and pushes participants by giving them the time and permission to reflect deeply on their place in the library world. Project SET is a program designed to broaden your library related understanding, boost your confidence and connect you to colleagues.

This program focuses on six key themes and the overall breakdown is as follows:

    1. Trends and emerging topics in the library field (30%)
    2. Instructional design (10%)
    3. Presentation skills (30%)
    4. Communication (10%)
    5. Leadership (10%)
