Working Together: Evolving Value for Academic Libraries
During this session, research conducted by LISU on behalf of SAGE will be announced. These results are based on a 6-month project that looked at libraries in the UK, US and Scandinavia to see how libraries are providing and demonstrating their value on campus. Working closely with librarians, the session looks to be an engaging discussion of the results, but also of best practices learned that can be applied to the libraries of the attendees. We hope to talk about how the results may be different or the same as attendee experiences, and what further questions may be researched.
