Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln



Librarians and teaching faculty can collaborate to create a good learning environment for students. Organizing events with outside speakers can bring lasting benefits to students, faculty, and the community. This article highlights the need for advance preparation when organizing an event. Librarians must clearly define objectives to maximize participation and ensure that events are linked to courses. When real-world events are linked to students' academic experience, they are more actively engaged and can be more involved in their studies. Through administrative contributions, librarians can facilitate such events.
