Librarians are always looking for a way to collaborate with faculty members, as both have mutual goals and concerns for students and the institution in general. In this two-hour class, learn methods to get faculty in the door so that you can begin collaborating on research assignments and events with the ultimate effect of making them your library’s biggest supporter.
Librarians will recognize the benefits of collaborating with their faculty. Librarians will describe methods of collaboration currently used in their institutions, and why they are or are not successful. At the end of the class, librarians will outline a plan to get faculty in the library to use their facilities.
Especially relevant to academic librarians, but open to any librarian looking for more ideas on collaboration.
