In what ways have you tried to engage your students to be critical thinkers, engaged citizens and research savvy scholars? What if your budget and library staff size didn’t reflect your big ideas? What if your library had never done events before? How would you go about it? This talk will present on the process of creating relevant, justice-centered, librarian-and-student facilitated events from scratch. Library events can be co-curricular learning experiences that complement the academic curriculum and enhanced when in collaboration with student organizations, clubs, community activists and scholars. Come learn how one small liberal arts library worked to create a space for discussion and dialogue amongst students, faculty, staff and the local community.
