Building a Bridge: How Library Services can Support Local Communities

Collaborating and sharing information with the surrounding community is written into the mission statement and goals of most institutions. How can the library be a valuable partner in supporting these community engagement objectives?

In this webinar bepress Consultants Sean Beld and Nancy Kerr discuss a variety of ways that libraries are combining forces with departments and offices across campus to share valuable regional research, create community-oriented collections, provide space for historical preservation, and more. Examples will show how the library can play a central role in:

-Obtaining grants and supporting grant-funded regional research
-Curating unique and diverse collections of local materials
-Creating new opportunities for student learning
