Building a Library Ambassador Program
Author ORCID Identifier
Connecting with students can seem like a daunting task. Staying on top of what is “hip” or “trending” in order to relay what we have to offer to students, in a way that is meaningful and engaging, can be exhausting! Having students hear the good word about the libraries from their peers can be an excellent way to combat this. At UAlbany, librarians built a student ambassadors program to foster peer-to-peer outreach with their student community. In this session, participants will learn how they built their program and about the benefits of having such a program exist.
