Future Focused Outreach with Campus and Community Collaborations
In changing times, outreach efforts play a major role in meaningfully connecting users to the academic library of the 21st century. Collaborations, both on- and off-campus, are vital to the success of such endeavors. This session showcases a pair of popular, late night outreach events debuted and hosted by an academic librarian during the fall 2017 semester in partnership with university student support divisions and off-campus entities. Presentation highlights benefits of community and cross-campus collaboration, replicable event details, initial outcomes and plans for the future for each of the discussed outreach initiatives.
