Academic Libraries and Student Life

More InfoHide Info ]
Session # M5
9:00-10:15
Shrinking budgets, changing technology, and increasing need to
demonstrate value led IUP libraries to collaborate with Student Affairs
to share their goals of engaging students, supporting student
success, and measuring the impact of their work. In this panel
discussion, academic library faculty, staff, and administrators will
provide a brief introduction to the evolution, impact and outcomes
of a successful partnership between IUP libraries and Student Affairs
on the IUP campus. A more general discussion of how to get started
with such collaborations, activities to engage students, and doable
and effective assessment measures will follow.

Session # M17
Monday 2:00-3:15
This hands-on presentation will illustrate why raising red wiggler
worms fulfills the science, health, and environmental needs of
library users from preschoolers to adults. Librarians teach worm
anatomy, (worms have no eyes, ears, they don’t have a nose, but
they do have five hearts), and by making a healthy snack and feeding
the leftovers to worms you can empower kids and adults to eat
nutritious food that is inexpensive and easy to prepare. Librarians
can also harness the power of composting worms to infuse the
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields into a
variety of library programs.

Leave the bat cave! Take your children’s programs on the road!
Bring your library’s super powers to those in your community who
need it most — daycares, preschools, early intervention classes and
their families. Outreach is invaluable. This program goes beyond
story time to show “outside the walls” thinking, use of social media
and how to create ongoing partnerships. Learn ways to capture
whole families and make a difference to those who may never make
it to your door. If they can’t come to you — take it to them...and
wear a cape!
