Proposal Title

Let’s get serious: The role of academic libraries in preparing graduate students for their collegiate careers

Presenter Status

Academic Librarian

Description

The Outreach Librarian initiated a grand adventure with the Graduate College to discover the best approaches to reach out to graduate students. Then the Outreach Librarian met with the Graduate Student Advisory Board and gave them a presentation about the library services available to them. In addition, the Outreach librarian discussed the importance of academic libraries collaborating and partnering with graduate students and Graduate College teaching faculty. Since graduate students use the library in a manner that differs from undergraduate students and faculty, a small survey was given to the Graduate Student Advisory Board members. Survey responses were analyzed to determine what library services the Graduate Student Advisory Board members were already aware of and also what other library services should be made available to graduate students.
