Online registration is now open for a free webcast on the ways that libraries contribute to undergraduate student success, sponsored by the LibValue project and the Association of Research Libraries (ARL). This one-hour program will highlight two areas related to student success: the physical space of the library and teaching/learning environmental interventions, drawing on results of surveys about commons spaces, as well as surveys of instructors and students.
Martha Kyrillidou, senior director of ARL statistics and service quality programs, will host the webcast. Guest presenters will include:
- Rachel Fleming-May, Assistant Professor, School of Information Sciences, University of Tennessee
- Regina Mays, Assistant Professor and Assessment Librarian, University of Tennessee Libraries
- Teresa Walker, Associate Professor and Head, Integrated User Services, University of Tennessee Libraries
This is the first in a series of free webcasts highlighting results from the LibValue project, a three-year study funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services to define and measure ways in which libraries create value through teaching and learning, research, and social, professional, and public engagement. Additional webcasts will be held between March and August 2013.
LibValue is a collaboration among the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Libraries, and the Association of Research Libraries, with partners at Syracuse University and Bryant University.
Register online for the LibValue Webcast: Undergraduate Student Success, to be held on Thursday, February 14, at 1:00 p.m. EST. There is no fee for attending this webcast, and it will be recorded and made freely available on ARL’s YouTube channel.
