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.
