    • IMPROVING EDUCATION AND OUTCOMES Focusing on faculty and staff development is hugely important. According to the American Council on Education, “As faculty continue to remain critical components of an institution’s effectiveness and productivity, Presidents and their senior administrators need to foster an environment conducive to faculty 1 retention and continued advancement.” I love the different ways that learning is put before the learner. We’re dealing with different skill sets in the new generation— and they’re not as classroom based. We need to have blend of the two to reach all the employees effectively Stephanie Scott, Organization Development & Learning Coordinator, Georgia Southern University Helping you carry out your mission A recent New York Times article asserts “The heart of any college or university is its human capital.”2 As budgets shrink and pressures to do more with less grow, universities and libraries need a cost-effective way to provide learning resources to their constituents. To keep up the pace of change, you need on demand learning assets—particularly online books and videos.
