Reach out and Touch: Innovation to Connect with Non-Traditional Library Users at Community Colleges
Retha Hall, Central Piedmont Community College
With the proliferation of media options and information, more than ever, libraries are competing with various technological advances in efforts to maintain their visibility and relevance. To address this issue, the CPCC Library conceived and implemented “Librarians on the Go”, an innovative outreach project using technology to expand reference services and to connect with “non-traditional” library users on the Central Campus. In this session, participants will learn how the idea was conceptualized, implemented and the challenges associated with providing services at a community college. Other innovative ideas and experiences on improving and expanding services will also be shared. Through this presentation and discussion attendees will be inspired to think of innovative ways to help extend the scope of library services while creating a presence beyond the bricks and mortar.
Retha Hall is responsible for outreach and marketing, reference and instruction at CPCC’s Hagemeyer Learning Resource Center
