Greater Western Library Alliance, Spring 2011 Meeting
Las Vegas, NV
This presentation addresses the importance of academic libraries shifting from "library as place" to "library as partner." The future success of academic libraries and librarians will be measured by their contributions as full partners in the education of students. The speaker will offer strategies to position academic libraries in this new role and identify the key factors in higher education and on our campuses to help move academic libraries from participants to leaders in undergraduate education. The talk will offer recommendations to create the necessary culture shift within libraries, on campuses, within regions, and - importantly- with donors. In conclusion, participants will consider steps to turn talk into action, action into evidence, and evidence into sustainable culture shift.
