Meeting The Next Generation: ​ A Cross-Campus Collaboration Via A Scholarship Workshop, Lora Winters, Ruth Monnier Oct 2022

Meeting The Next Generation: ​ A Cross-Campus Collaboration Via A Scholarship Workshop, Lora Winters, Ruth Monnier

Faculty Submissions

Reaching high school students before they set foot on campus would allow writing centers to increase awareness of services while also making personal connections to students, which has been proven to increase student retention. Targeting these students can be difficult and expensive, but our writing center collaborated with library services and our admissions office to create a program about finding scholarship opportunities/writing scholarship essays that was inexpensive, targeted local high schools, and initial results indicate that this program is beneficial to our university’s recruitment efforts. We will discuss our findings and how this program could be replicated by other institutions.

Open Educational Resources: Opportunities For Librarians At Olc 2022, Ruth Monnier

Open Educational Resources - Presentations

Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching, learning, and research materials that provide everyone with free permission to use. OER, which can include images, articles, videos and more, can lower barriers to accessing information. While OER is typically associated with academic libraries, there are many different kinds of openly licensed materials available, and many are applicable to other types of libraries. This session will cover what OER is, how OER can create a more inclusive and accessible environment, and ways OER might be used for programming and library needs.

Faculty and Staff Publications – Milner Library

Although discussion related to student success within higher education has been ongoing for years, there has been an increased focus recently within academic libraries. For instance, the College and Research Libraries April 2020 Special Issue includes several articles about measuring student success. Many articles within this issue and the broader library literature focus on the individual, local efforts, and few examine more broad trends across academic libraries.

In this poster, the researchers will present the findings of a research study examining student success initiatives within university and college libraries in North America. Specifically, the researchers will report on a survey …

Getting Into The Workflow: Graduate Support Workshops, Steven Baumgart, Rebecca Payne, Anne E. Rauh, Lisa Saywell

Anne Rauh

How can librarians engage with graduate student education and research? Often, graduate student orientations of academic departments include only introductory information about the library and are discipline-focused. To address a need for better library support for graduate students increasingly pursuing interdisciplinary research and study, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries initiated a series of workshops designed to integrate into the workflow of graduate students. Presenters will discuss how the program evolved from a one-library pilot program into a coordinated series of workshops across multiple campus libraries. Details about workshop topics, structure, design, and promotion and series feedback and next steps will …
