  2. GCLG: a little background • Group of college librarians representing 8 FE Colleges in Glasgow • Originally formed in 1998 as the Library and Information Access Group of the Glasgow Telecolleges Network (GTN) • Major focus of the group was the Next Generation Library project which procured the Horizon LMS • Meets every 6 weeks to pursue collaborative agenda • Collaborative staff development is a high priority of the group

Why staff development? • To raise awareness among staff • To develop staff skills • To develop the service • To try to ensure consistent services and standards across the Glasgow College Libraries • To help meet the expectations of “instant expert syndrome” • Learning by doing and sharing the experience
