This qualitative research assesses the success of a unique upper-level course project developed collaboratively by a library faculty member and a history instructor. It resulted in a permanent online library guide and a one-hour public panel event focused on a social justice issue. We situate our assessment of the project in today's higher education environment, which is increasingly dependent on part-time and non-tenure-track faculty, as well as within the increased emphasis on public engagement for land-grant universities.
