Presentation from Ontario Library Association Superconference 2010
Session # 606 - Thurs., Feb 25.
This session will familiarize participants with the literature on the academic library’s role in student retention. Suggestions for future directions in library service will be offered based on how the library “fits” into different models of student integration. Current initiatives to combat attrition will be discussed, and ideas for gathering evidence to assess your library’s impact or prove your role in this campus-wide issue will be offered. Areas requiring further research will also be highlighted. Come learn more how your library can support student retention in a competitive post-secondary environment!
