Looking outward: partnerships and outreach at Hollins University1

Vilelle Luke and Barber Maryke

Abstract:

This chapter highlights the collaborative nature of library services at Hollins University, Roanoke, Virginia. It examines why libraries must seek to engage with the campus community, and then discusses a variety of engagement approaches, including outreach, staff participation in campus activities, a student advisory board, and programming. These tactics can build relationships and enhance a library’s reputation across campus. Case studies are used to illustrate engagement with students, faculty and administration.
