Does the library provide information mainly to grad students?

  • Librarians jobs are coming to a turning point. They come in at the end to narrow down results after the fact where before they helped on the front end.

University of Iowa has a central graduate admissions site that lists all grad and professional programs in one place with a similar format and content type.

What sort of services does your university provide for (staff) training?

  • CPR
  • Violent Incident Training
  • Providing for safety and awareness (safe rides etc.), crisis alert systems

Staff communities

  • CMS communities: email groups, in-system help systems, trainings
  • Ambassadors for different topics: Safety, Health and Wellness, Technology, Web, etc.
  • Issues: identity crises within the community and cross-roles (Content? Developers? Tech/Support?)
  • Examples: Nebraska, Penn State
