Collaborating and sharing information with the surrounding community is written into the mission statement and goals of most institutions. How can the library be a valuable partner in supporting these community engagement objectives?
In this webinar bepress Consultants Sean Beld and Nancy Kerr discuss a variety of ways that libraries are combining forces with departments and offices across campus to share valuable regional research, create community-oriented collections, provide space for historical preservation, and more. Examples will show how the library can play a central role in:
-Obtaining grants and supporting grant-funded regional research
-Curating unique and diverse collections of local materials
-Creating new opportunities for student learning
