New Frontiers in the Library: Library-led Student Leadership Programs for Student, Library and Institutional Success
Thursday, May 7
4:45 p.m. – 5:45 p.m.

Leadership opportunities and experiential learning are more than buzzwords on today’s college campuses. They are increasingly what students expect from their college experience and what a university is expected to provide. However, these opportunities do not need to come exclusively through the classroom or student affairs; the library – with its central role on campus – can and should play an active role in this important university goal. By developing a library leadership program, libraries and institutions benefit through student leadership in creative visioning, marketing and outreach, research assistance, technology projects, and much more. In this session, you’ll hear from a librarian and a student about the A-LIST program at Towson University.

This program is worth 1 contact hour of continuing education.

Presenters:

Carissa Tomlinson - First Year Experience Librarian, Towson University
