Brief description of my session:
Vendor partnerhips with engineering libraries
Effective partnerships with vendors can often be instrumental in promoting library resources to their faculty and students. In that sense, they can play a crucial role in reaching out to faculty and students with not only the vendor's own resource(s) but also other library services and its website as well. In this particular session, I am inviting presentations on such partnerships where engineering libraries have collaborated with electronic resource vendors or any other types of library vendors to plan, organize and carry out related activities for their faculty and students. In a way it may not be just outreach but also can encompass possible instructional and information literacy related activities emerging from such partnerships. I am also inviting submissions on any future or envisioned such partnerships and in that case, what you plan to achieve in the process as a team.
