Fruitful Collaborations: Building Bridges to Connect Student Services

January 10, 1 pm

Emily Mross and Hailley Fargo

Connect & Communicate Series

Zoom Session (online)

Supported by PaLA

When students need help, they often must visit multiple campus resources to get all the services they need — from research assistance, to writing support, and even technology help. In an effort to better meet student needs, some libraries are partnering with student services units from across their campuses to provide additional help options within the familiar research assistance environment. This webinar will explore some of these collaborations within the Penn State University Libraries system. Hailley Fargo helped create the Search Bar, a suite of peer-to-peer services at the University Park Libraries. Emily Mross at Penn State Harrisburg Library coordinates Write, Research, Revise: 2-on-1 appointments with a librarian and writing tutor to improve final research papers. Learn about these programs, how to start a successful student success collaboration on your campus, and discuss some of your own fruitful collaborations.
