Book Description :

Academic libraries have continually looked for technological solutions to low circulation statistics, under-usage by students and faculty, and what is perceived as a crisis in relevance, seeing themselves in competition with Google and Wikipedia. Academic libraries, however, are as relevant as they have been historically, as their primary functions within their university missions have not changed, but merely evolved. Going beyond the Gate Count argues that the problem is not relevance, but marketing and articulation. This book offers theoretical reasoning and practical advice to directors on how to better market the function of the library within and beyond the home institution. The aim of this text is to help directors, and ultimately, their librarians and staff get students and faculty back into the library, as a result of better articulation of the library’s importance. The first chapter explores the promotion of academic libraries and their function as educational systems. The next two chapters focus on the importance of the role social media and virtual presence in the academic library, and engaging and encouraging students to use the library through a variety of methods, such as visually oriented special collections. Remaining chapters discuss collaboration and collegiality, formalized reporting and marketing. Offers clear, concise writing, with thoughtful discussions of the problems facing academic libraries Demonstrates comprehensive and thoughtful research that informs theoretical approaches to realistic outcomes that address these problems Provides helpful tables, illustrations, and photographs that evidence the collaborative nature of contemporary academic libraries Provides practical examples from actual experiences that can be adapted by readers

Book Description :

This collection of collaborative, high-impact learning experiences in information literacy teaches librarians how to engage students in hands-on, experiential learning. The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) has identified 11 practices that are highly impactful to student learning to designate as high-impact educational practices (HIP). These practices engage students deeply in a meaningful, connected way to their work. Librarians teach and support student learning in many ways that assist these AAC&U practices, such as information literacy instruction for capstone, writing, and first-year seminars and research support for collaborative assignments and projects. Engaging Students through Campus Libraries calls attention to work in information literacy that goes beyond a traditional librarian role; it features librarians and faculty partners who engage in projects that highlight salient, experiential facets of the AAC&U practices in order to teach information literacy. In this book, librarians will learn high-impact, experiential learning models for working with students. They will understand how to think about and describe how AAC&U best practices are currently embodied in their organizations. They will also imagine future learning experiences for students with HIPs in mind, resulting in information literacy that is integrated into disciplinary work in a vital and transformative way. Demonstrates the varied and exciting possibilities for engaged, integrated information literacy instruction Includes details about planning and preparation so that readers can replicate, scale, or adapt practices in other library environments Offers librarians practical models for pursuing their own partnerships in other disciplines Includes narrative accounts of completed projects and programs involving students from a range of majors and academic departments
