Quality Collaboration: Partnerships Across the Academy
In spring 2010, Librarians reviewed each of Webster University Library's 150 subject and multidisciplinary databases to ensure they continue to support the curriculum, . This successful collaboration began with subject liaisons and reference librarians and extended to meaningfully include faculty, other library staff, students, and vendors. Examples and results are presented in the context of our largest subject collection, the 40+ business-related databases. We will showcase how this review has, and continues to, inform and strengthen library instruction and collection development across the Walker School of Business & Technology. This session describes the review process and outcomes in detail so participants may replicate useful elements in their own libraries or with their own subject collections.
