This is a good article from the January 2015 issue of the C&RL News.

One-to-one instruction: Two perspectives – by Ellen Bahr and Chandler Harriss.

In this article, we share a description and analysis of a project undertaken as part of an introductory-level mass communication class at Alfred University (AU). The project involved a semester-long collaboration between a librarian and a faculty member. The project was founded by a desire to give students an integrative experience, meaning an experience that connects the classroom with external campus resources (i.e., the library). We will present the experience from two perspectives, that of the librarian and that of the faculty.

Article about university press and library collaboration in JLSC

Roh, C. (2014). Library-Press Collaborations: A Study Taken on Behalf of the University of Arizona. Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication 2(4):eP1102. http://dx.doi.org/10.7710/2162-3309.1102

BACKGROUND The University of Arizona Press moved under the University of Arizona Library both physically and administratively a few years ago, echoing a trend amongst university presses: 20 AAUP members now are under the administration of university libraries. To understand the new evolving relationships in scholarly communication, a review of university press and library collaborations was undertaken by the University of Arizona Press and the University of Arizona Library through the Association of Research Libraries Career Enhancement Program (ARL CEP).
