Abstract
Who are the last students you expect to see in a university library?  Probably athletes.  With incredibly tight schedules structured around classes, homework, practices, and athletic events, most student athletes have very little free time in their schedules.  Because they have their own academic support structure, libraries most likely do not reach out to the Athletics Department.   Join librarians and academic support staff discuss what happens when they team up to play ball to support student success.
