This is a practical guide written by two professionals with real-world experience establishing a library student advisory board. Penn State University’s Schuylkill campus library has such a board, operating beautifully. Different from traditional student advisory boards, the club at Penn State Schuylkill resembles a public library’s “friends” group. The activities of the club benefit not only the library and campus but the club members themselves. Just how much time, effort, and know-how is required to form a library student advisory board? Here is the answer. Useful advice is offered on how to get a club started, how to recruit new members and keep them active, the duties of the club advisor, basic “do’s and don’ts” of fundraising, and how to build a successful relationship between the club, the library director, and the library staff.

'...Material presented here is replete with concrete new ideas not only for collaboration, but also for funding, training, personal involvement, Web-based instruction, and other concepts too numerous to mention. And the best thing about these ideas is that they are not the usual endlessly-discussed theories_these are ideas that have worked_and some which have failed_in the real world...Despite the myriad new works available today related to library instruction in general and information literacy in particular, none is devoted solely to collaborative efforts between teaching faculty and librarians. This is where Library User Education: Powerful Learning, Powerful Partnerships shines_just as in the real world, it's all about collaboration.' _Angela Weiler, Portal

This book outlines issues surrounding diversity among students, faculty, and staff and how one urban university library is working to embrace and celebrate the diversity found in its building, on campus, and in the local community. This book illustrates how universities are uniquely situated to engage students in discussions about diversity and how academic libraries in particular can facilitate and ease these discussions. A Diversity Council and the projects and programs it has developed have been instrumental in this work and may serve as an inspiration and launch pad for other libraries. Diversity Programming and Outreach for Academic Libraries details anecdotal experiences, and provides practical suggestions for developing diversity programs and forming collaborations with other campus units, regardless of size, staff, or focus of the academic library. Written by three academic librarians currently active in university level diversity initiatives Provides real-world examples of diversity programming and events for academic libraries Indicates how to find commonalities in the range of diversity issues at universities internationally
