Presentation Description

In a college environment where information literacy is not a priority, getting students into the library is essential in familiarizing them with available students into the library is essential in familiarizing them with available resources. A tiny community college library held little attraction with its out of date monographs. However, acquisition and promotion of new materials as well as outreach to faculty to take advantage of library orientation sessions led to an increase in circulation and traffic, and an increase in opportunities to promote the tools of information literacy.
