To develop Farmingdale State College's first interdisciplinary research event, the library collaborated with several campus departments to establish Student Research Day. Inspired by its acquisition of a poster printer, the library proposed the implementation of a student poster session, sought out campus partnerships to garner student involvement, and secured event funding through a campus grant. Specifically, the library formed a strong partnership with the Research Aligned Mentorship (RAM) Program. This program provides extra benefits and research opportunities to students who are selected from a lottery of minority, low income, and/or first-generation college students. Through its collaboration with the RAM Program, the library facilitated specialized instruction, assessed students' confidence levels in conducting research, and successfully hosted a large-scale research event, the first of its kind at the college.
