Librarians are no strangers to collaboration; many have worked with faculty to provide integrated information literacy instruction or other academic services, such as computing, to create learning commons. It is somewhat surprising, however, that there’s so little published about library partnerships with student affairs, especially when one considers their services and support in various areas that encompass the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of students and that ultimately impact their learning.
