Engaging Students Outside the Classroom

Jennifer Beals, Associate Professor & Head of Special CollectionsMichelle Brannen, Studio ManagerLibraries

‚ÄčAmong the most used learning spaces outside the campus classroom, the University Libraries engages students through outreach programs, services, and spaces. In the Libraries students express themselves, get their work done, and even kick back to have fun. From raves to reports, friends to finals, morning to midnight, study to sleep, quarrels to quiet, computers to centaurs, pizza to programs, copying to coffee, paper to projector, or books to bytes, students use the Libraries to connect to each other and to the University. Featured programs, services and events include The Commons, Film Movement Series, Raves, Art in the Libraries, Writers in the Library, Free Range Video Contest, National Day of Writing, The Culture Corner, Life of the Mind, Graduate Student Open House, Open Access Week, Research Assistance, Music and Agriculture-Veterinary Medicine special libraries, Special Collections and University Archives, digital collections, and the Leisure Reading Book Club. Faculty and staff involved in this initiative include Michelle Brannen, Jennifer Beals, JoAnne Deeken, Chris Durman, Steven Milewski, Martha Rudolph and Greg Womac.
