Short Description

In this session, you will learn loads of ways on how to position and promote your library resources and services in a language that’s crystal clear, so that faculty and students understand what’s at the library, what the library can do for them, and why it matters!

Long Description

Skip the jargon—“library resources” and learn what works for messaging to faculty and students effectively.

In this session, you will learn loads of ways on how to position and promote your library’s resources and services in a language that’s crystal clear, so that faculty and students understand and want to use them.

When faculty recognize what a library has to offer, they are more likely to add library content to their courses, invite a librarian into their classroom to demonstrate searching, and promote library databases.

When students recognize what a library has to offer, they are more likely to ask librarians for research help, thus increasing searches on the library website.

This session is designed to increase database use, and grow reference numbers. Every librarian is a stakeholder in the success of their library, so learn how to position your library with faculty and students for everyone’s success.

Learning Objectives

  1. Apply new ways to embed library services and resources for academic student success.
  2. Describe your role succinctly and how you benefit the academic community.
  3. Increase circulation numbers, increase the use of databases and grow reference numbers.

Comments

I did not select a discipline because this session is applicable to all college programs and outreach efforts.
