In the midst of this hurricane of information, how can you reach your students? How do discovery services fit in? Join us for a discussion led by Karen McKeown, Director of Discovery and Analytics at Gale, to hear about what Gale is doing to get to students’ natural use paths and reinventing the definition of discovery.
March 20: Partnering with the University Writing Center: Boot Camps
Join Mandy Havert, Graduate Outreach Services and Education Librarian at Notre Dame University, to hear about their success in growing student relationships at Notre Dame through a partnership with the University Writing Center.
