ACRL MD New Opportunities for Academic Libraries: Student Success and the Student Employee
Start Date: 1/19/2023 10:15 AM EST End Date: 1/19/2023 12:30 PM EST
Online Via Zoom
Student academic success, engagement, and career readiness are high priorities for colleges and universities. Academic libraries often work to support these priorities through resources, services, and spaces for student users, but fewer libraries consider the impact that student employment and other student contributions in the library can have in these areas. Carissa Tomlinson, Director of Student Experience, Learning, & Outreach at the University of Minnesota Libraries will present recent research in this area along with case studies highlighting creative opportunities for academic libraries to support students in new ways. Participants will then hear from a panel of library workers, who work closely with student staff in a variety of ways and share practical ideas and approaches.
The Maryland Chapter of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL MD) is excited to invite proposals for our division to sponsor at the Maryland Library Association & Delaware Library Association Annual Conference, on May 5 – 7, 2021 as we explore Libraries Without Limits.
Proposals are due by 11:59pm on September 18th and will undergo a double blind peer-review. If you have any questions about ACRL MD’s proposal process or our programs for the annual conference, please contact Sean Hogan – firstname.lastname@example.org
