Abstract

This session highlights graduate outreach services at the University of Central Florida and Clemson University libraries and compares institutional program approaches, outreach strategies, and the research needs of student populations in the Social Sciences and Engineering. The presenters coordinate graduate outreach services at their institutions, and the first part of the presentation will include a discussion of each institution’s service model and each librarian’s role. Details about collaborations with campus partners and networking, f2f workshops and use of online platforms (Canvas LMS) to promote services, recruiting outreach advocates, and marketing programs will also be discussed. The second part of the session will include a focus-group activity using a series of question prompts to generate discussion about outreach topics and engage attendees in learning what other libraries are doing to provide graduate outreach services. Attendees will be asked to share their experiences guided by the following question prompts: What graduate outreach services are offered at your library? How does your library coordinate and evaluate graduate outreach programming? What is your elevator pitch and/or approaches to marketing graduate outreach? Do you offer graduate workshops? If so, what topics and formats are offered (f2f or online)? What are two (or more) best practices your recommend to support/promote graduate outreach?
