ACRL/NY is pleased to announce the formation of a First Year Experience Discussion Group.
The First Year Experience Discussion Group of ACRL/NY (FYEDG) aims to offer a platform for the discussion, presentations, workshops and exchange of ideas relating to the role of the librarian in providing service to first-year students in higher education. Topics that may be considered include student preparedness and transition issues, transfer student populations, cross-campus collaborations, outreach and a wide range of literacy programs and workshops – and will include discussion on ways to reach out to students as well as teaching faculty. This group may be of interest to librarians working with first-year students in all academic settings (community colleges, four-year colleges, research universities) as well as those working in the high-school setting. We welcome suggestions for and participation in our FYEDG events and encourage newcomers to join ACRL/NY as well as ACRL national.
We hope to have our first “meet & greet” event in May 2013 — the date and time will be announced soon.
We’d love to have you join the group.
For information about joining this group or if you have suggestions for upcoming meeting topics, please contact the ACRL/NY FYEDG Co-Chairs Caroline Fuchs at firstname.lastname@example.org and Natalia Gelber Natalia.Gelber@liu.edu
