"Interest in supporting students and their competencies and learning outcomes shows signs of surging." This was one of the most significant findings of Ithaka S+R's latest US Faculty Survey. Other research has found that library directors agree almost unanimously about the importance of their library supporting teaching and learning. In recent years, expectations have increased not only for the library to demonstrate its impact on students but for universities to increase retention, progression, graduation, and later-life outcomes. Ebsco's User Research Group has studied student research practices and the challenges they face, as well as the kinds of librarian-faculty partnerships that are effective in supporting students. This session will share research findings principally from the US, but also from the UK and China, to address the strategic engagements that libraries can make today to contribute directly to student success.
