Networking with students

I saw a great idea for connecting special librarians with students in the most recent bulletin of the Special Libraries Association's Eastern Canada Chapter.

The Special Libraries Association Student Group at the McGill Graduate School of Library and Information Studies invited area special librarians to participate in an event with a format similar to speed dating. Small student groups each had approximately five minutes with one of the invited guests before a buzzer would ring, signaling that it was time to move on to the next special librarian. The event lasted an hour and in the latter half of that period, there was an opportunity to "mix and mingle," giving students additional time to speak with any of the librarians whose comments were of particular interest to them.
