April Kessler: Academic and public library partnership

20120705-033040.jpg

How can we, as an academic library, partner with and better promote the public library to our students, staff, faculty and alumni? When students graduate they no longer have the same kind of access to the university resources. The public library provides excellent resources, but our customers are often unaware of how the public library can serve their needs. We are also the primary resource of leisure reading for 30,000 staff members – reinforcing the idea that the academic library is their only library option even though we purchase a limited number of popular materials. How can we provide the best service to all users while maximizing limited resources?
