Academic Libraries and Shared Reading Programs. The College Connection
Kasowitz-Scheer, Abby
Educators' Spotlight Digest, v2 n2 Spr-Sum 2007
During the summer, thousands of soon-to-be college students will read books as part of campus-wide "shared reading" programs (also referred as to common reader programs, one book programs, etc.). Such programs are designed to provide incoming students with a common experience and invite exploration of particular themes (e.g., diversity, etc.), while promoting reading and intellectual engagement. A variety of special events and initiatives are planned during fall and sometimes spring semesters to give students multiple opportunities to connect with the book, such as author visits, discussion groups, and book-related course assignments. This article highlights several shared reading programs and their special offerings, including areas where librarians collaborate with faculty and others to promote information literacy.
