Engagement and Collaboration: What More Can We Do?

OPAL Library Conference

Berea, OH 44017


Conference Description:

Academic libraries are often seeking out new and innovative ways to reach out and engage with their traditional and non-traditional constituencies. In what ways can libraries collaborate to engage current or new patrons? Can we engage with other libraries or other repositories to come up with new ways to show off our library resources or our skills as librarians? If librarians work outside our traditional ‘silos’ can we find new ways of bringing resources of all kinds to the public? How have you or your libraries engaged and collaborated in innovative ways?
