Library Outreach: Introducing Campus Childcare Providers to the Academic Library
Edwards, Melissa Maxwell; Thornton, Elaine
Education Libraries, v36 n2 p4-16 Win 2013
This case study describes a library outreach effort to university staff members employed by the campus child care center. Authors planned an instructional session to introduce child care staff members to library resources, focusing on the curriculum collection as a source of supplemental materials for classrooms. Surveys were administered before and after the workshop to gauge changes in participants' awareness of library resources and comfort level using the library. Results based on descriptive statistics and qualitative data indicated a significant increase in participants' awareness of and comfort using campus library resources and services. The authors encourage similar efforts within other academic communities and provide examples of potential partnerships.
