As the world goes digital, libraries adjust their strategies, by @marytablante | USA TODAY College | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

Beyond using the library as a place to study, here are some other ways students can make use of library services provided by their universities:

• Check out laptops, iPads or calculators

• Go beyond Wikipedia and Google

Term papers and theses rely on more than a simple Google search. Professors encourage students to use scholarly and peer-reviewed articles.

University libraries have more than 600 databases...

• Ask a librarian 24/7

Karen du Toit's insight:

Libraries are changing > spaces and services!

Joint Libraries: Models That Work

Joint Libraries: Models That Work | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

By Claire B. Gunnels, Susan E. Green, and Patricia M. Butler:

"A public/community college joint-use library is an especially good combination. The missions and the service populations are similar enough to provide significant overlap and allow for excellent services to all users. For example, community college students find that the public library’s collections of materials and resources meet many of their academic needs and provide an excellent complement to the materials owned by the college. Likewise, community college students respond well to the friendly service orientation provided by a well-trained public library reference staff. I think that other combinations, such as a high school/PL or university/PL joint-use library, present additional challenges to good service that we do not face."
