While a recent Ithaka S+R survey* found that approximately eight in ten librarians feel that the most important priority for their library is supporting student success, only about half feel that their library has clearly articulated how it contributes towards this success. In this session, Melissa Lockaby, Collection Management Librarian & Coordinator of Information Services, and Austina Jordan, Collection Management Librarian & Coordinator of Information Services, two University of North Georgia librarians who have had success in supporting student success, will articulate their best practices for putting students first. In particular, they will discuss how cross-campus partnerships such as those with faculty, student affairs departments, IT, and student resource centers like writing and tutoring can turn librarians into effective “front-line” responders for student needs and in-class achievement.

Articulated best practices will include:

• How to create successful programming partnerships in order to help students reach their goals
• How to work with faculty in the promotion of library resources so that students will use them as effective tools in research and other class assignments
• How to support faculty members’ own research and teaching needs in a way that turns them into library champions
• Fun ideas for appealing to students so that they come back to the library with learning and researching needs
• How to take advantage of outside-of-the-library campus resources for students

Their presentation will end with a lively discussion and Q&A from the audience.
