Scheduled for Wednesday, June 13 at 2:00pm ET | Sponsored and presented by Credo Reference
From FYE to ROI to HIP, librarians are seeing new acronyms emerge in their campus administrations’ initiatives. How can today’s academic libraries position themselves to improve student success and retention, using high-impact practices (HIPs) to demonstrate a return-on-investment (ROI)? Many libraries struggle to define and implement their services in a way that meets these shifting expectations. However, new ideas, resources, and partnerships offer a path forward in support of these efforts.
First year student success librarian Raymond Pun will discuss strategies, activities, and programs presented in The Credo FYE Guide: Practices for Enhancing Instructions (an open access publication by Credo Reference) to support these trends. Through information literacy, student engagement, collaboration, assessment, and library orientations, these services can enrich the experiences of first year and incoming students. Attendees will gain valuable insights including how they can leverage, optimize, and maximize resources and services for success.
ACRL president-elect Lauren Pressley will provide opening remarks on the importance of showcasing the library’s value, and the role assessment can play when marketing the library’s services and resources to the broader campus community.
Join us for the Inaugural Makerspaces for Innovation and Research in Academics (MIRA) conference.

A highly practical one-day workshop developing knowledge, skills and confidence to support academic librarians and consortia members engaged in negotiating with publishers and other vendors for electronic resources. Librarians will be able to apply what they learn immediately to ongoing and future negotiations, both new deals and renewals.
Is this Workshop for You?
Negotiation Skills for Librarians has been written for serials and acquisitions librarians and consortia members involved in the acquisition of electronic resources in academic institutions or on behalf of academic consortia*. Written at an introductory-intermediate level, the workshop is for those who are new to negotiations or who have some negotiation experience and are seeking a ‘refresher’ and/or additional tips, skills and knowledge. It will also benefit those being trained to undertake purchasing roles in the future. More experienced negotiators are welcome to attend but are asked to be aware of the intended level of this workshop. The workshop focuses on e-journals and other serially published content (although some of the learning will support eBook/database acquisition)…
