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.
This is a nice article in Inside Higher Ed concerning a collaboration between a college and a University in Iowa.
Grinnell College and the University of Iowa are using the digital humanities to bridge the physical distance and institutional differences between their campuses.
Over the next four years, the two institutions will encourage students, faculty and staffers to form “new kinds of teams” to collaborate on humanities research and use digital resources in the classroom. Supported by a $1.6 million grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the initiative, titled Digital Bridges for Humanistic Inquiry, is being billed by university officials as the first time the foundation has supported a direct partnership between a public research university and a private liberal arts college.
OpenCon 2014 took place November 15th to the 17th. The text below was in an email from ARL/SPARC as a Special Member Communication.
The goal of OpenCon was to convene those in the next generation leading the charge for openness in research and education, energize them by bringing them together with peers and leaders in the community, and support them in their advocacy efforts after the meeting – particularly in projects done in collaboration with their libraries.

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).
