Student Affairs Connection: Promoting the Library through Co-Curricular Activities
Librarians at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro University Libraries developed the “Student Affairs Connection” program in order to market the Libraries to students in co-curricular settings and to collaborate more closely with the Student Affairs Division. The program also provides the opportunity to seek student input on Libraries’ services and resources and communicate directly with them in a variety of ways. The program has multiple facets: a liaison program where librarians are assigned to specific student organizations and services such as Student Government and Residence Life; a Student Libraries Advisory Council (SLAC) representing diverse groups of students that meets with librarians several times a year; staffing a Libraries’ table and providing information and giveaways at information fairs; and sponsoring special events such as Game Night each semester.
