The New Library: From Information Repositories to Learning Centers

By IGI Global on Aug 16, 2016
Technology-Centered Academic Library Partnerships and Collaborations As libraries make the transition from information repositories to centers of learning, librarians are under pressure to collaborate more effectively with other academic units and departments. At the same time, classroom faculty feel pressure to experiment with innovative teaching methods, to provide experiential learning opportunities, to be more interdisciplinary and collaborative, and to engage their students more proactively.

The IGI Global chapter "Curricular Collaborations: Using Emerging Technologies to Foster Innovative Partnerships", written by Susan M. Ryan (Stetson University, USA) and W. Tandy Grubbs (Stetson University, USA), presents a unique 3D printing curricular collaboration between a library and an academic department that illustrates the importance of collaboration and innovation. This study also addresses the changing mission of libraries, the learning styles of millennial students, and the benefits of experiential learning, discussing both the opportunities presented by curricular collaborations and the challenges to providing technologies in a curricular context.

This research is featured in the Library and Information Science title Technology-Centered Academic Library Partnerships and Collaborations, edited by Brian Doherty of the New College of Florida, USA. This title examines cooperation efforts employed by librarians, allowing them to provide more services and resources to their patrons with an emphasis on the digital tools and resources being used in such collaborations. Featuring research on various types of partnerships and institutional relationships, as well as the overall benefits of these collaborations, this publication is an essential reference source for librarians, researchers, academic administrators, advanced-level students, and information technology professionals.
