An article came out in C&RL News last month — “Making the video: Tips for successful library-class collaborations” by Lynne Bisko and Rebecca Pope-Ruark.
From the Introduction:
Elon University’s Belk Library doesn’t have a problem getting students in the door—the library is well-loved and well-used. Unfortunately, we don’t have the staff to reach all of our students through formal instruction sessions, and not as many students ask questions at the information desk as we would hope.
So when approached with the opportunity to be a client for the Center for Undergraduate Publishing and Information Design (CUPID), run by Professional Writing and Rhetoric (PWR) faculty in the Department of English, we jumped at the chance. CUPID is an active teaching lab and program that provides students with opportunities for long- and short-term collaborative project experiences.
