As questions of the value and importance of higher education continue to be raised by the media, politicians, parents, and students how can universities and libraries respond? One response is to become more engaged with their communities and supporting research and activities that directly benefit their town, city, and state. This keynote will highlight connections between universities and their communities, the role of engaged learning, and the importance of research and partnerships with librarians.


Presentation given on March 31st at the University of Michigan's Library Engagement Symposium.
