Abstract

Two EKU librarians and an Education faculty member will discuss an ongoing collaboration, in which Elementary Education students perform required service learning hours in the library’s Learning Resources Center. Learn what library service learning entailed for us, as well as the many ways in which the experience benefits both the library and students, both at EKU and in the next chapter of their lives as educators. Learn how you can adapt and benefit from these strategies in an academic library setting.
