“College Book Clubs: Collaborating for Success” by Lisa A. Forrest
Book Club programming not only adds to the value of the college library, but serves as an excellent marketing and outreach tool for librarians as well. This article describes collaboration between the Women’s Studies Program and E. H. Butler Library at Buffalo State College to establish a Women & Gender Book Club and outlines a model which can be extended to a variety of contexts.
