How can the library work with students and faculty to improve communication and collaboration across campus?

Webinar Resources:


With their day-to-day interactions with students and faculty across disciplines, libraries are positioned to directly impact student success, supporting a key component of nearly all university missions.

But libraries can’t do it by themselves: it takes partnership with both students and faculty.

Join us for an insightful discussion about the findings of three global surveys of librarians, faculty and students on the topic of student achievement. We’ll examine how faculty and the library perceive and work with each other and take a deep dive into what students say they need to be successful – particularly when it comes to accessing and using course materials.

Our panelists will share recommendations for how to improve communication and collaboration across campus, focusing particularly on barriers faculty and library staff experience in integrating library resources into coursework – and why, for students, it is imperative to their success that these barriers are overcome.
