Student Library Employment as a High-Impact Practice (Lightning Talk)High Impact Practices in Academic Libraries Symposium (2020)
Student employment in academic libraries mirrors many of the characteristics and positive aspects of high impact practices.
The University of Oregon Libraries is at the beginning stages of re-framing their library student employment experience as a high impact practice. Currently, the UO Libraries are having internal discussions, identifying student employment learning outcomes, and building relationships with campus stakeholders. Additionally, the UO Libraries is working with campus institutional research to pull datasets that may connect library student employment to broader student success metrics such as student retention.
This session will offer a broad outline of how library student employment is a potentially high impact practice for academic libraries to consider and discuss strategies that libraries might use to support student employment as a high impact practice.
Audience members will be able ...
• Identify high-impact practice characteristics of academic library student employment.
• Identify strategies academic libraries are employing to build student employment as a high impact practice.
• Identify potential learning outcomes or standards that can define the library student employment high impact practice experience.
