New Frontiers in the Library: Library-led Student Leadership Programs for Student, Library and Institutional Success

A session at 2015 Maryland Library Association & Delaware Library Association Joint Annual Conference

  • Kelly Langford

Thursday 7th May, 2015

4:45pm to 5:45pm (EST)

Leadership opportunities and experiential learning are more than buzzwords on today’s college campuses. They are increasingly what students expect from their college experience and what a university is expected to provide. However, these opportunities do not need to come exclusively through the classroom or student affairs; the library - with its central role on campus - can and should play an active role in this important university goal. By developing a library leadership program, libraries and institutions benefit through student leadership in creative visioning, marketing and outreach, research assistance, technology projects, and much more. In this session, you’ll hear from a librarian and a student about the A-LIST program at Towson University.
