Managing Academic and Research Libraries Partnerships.
Rader, Hannelore B.
This paper describes initiatives at the University of Louisville (Kentucky) as an example of a successful scenario where, through a variety of partnerships, the libraries have become more central in the campus teaching and learning community. The first section describes faculty-librarianship partnerships, including initiatives related to information literacy, distance education, faculty development, a writing center, higher education opportunities for UPS (United Parcel Service) employees, research support, and assessment. The second section addresses partnerships in the health sciences, including initiatives with the hospitals and the IAIMS (Integrated Advanced Information Management System) grant for informatics. The third section covers partnerships on campus, including partnerships with student groups, a partnership with the information technology department, and Metroversity (i.e., a consortium of academic institutions to support higher education and workforce development). The fourth section discusses partnership with other libraries, including initiatives related to professional education, managerial training, and information literacy training. The fifth section mentions the Kentucky Virtual Library, a statewide library partnership. Examples of other university-libraries partnerships are listed. (MES)
