Get ready to discuss STEM retention at ALA Conference
Are you interested in how you can contribute to the retention of science and engineering students at your institution? The Science Retention Librarian blog explores news, blogs, and education and library and information science literature for potential strategies to support STEM students with library collections and services. Recent posts are “Science through Storytelling?” and “Huffington Post Supports Girls in STEM.” Join blogger Erin O’Toole from the University of North Texas and add your ideas to the STEM retention dialogue.
The blog is related to two STS conference programs being offered in Las Vegas:
Sticking with STEM: How the Academic Library Can Help to Retain Successful Students, Monday, June 30, 8:30 am, LVCC-S220
STS Program Poster Session, Monday, June 30, 10:30 am, LVH-Pavilion 06
Science Retention Librarian will give academic librarians a place to discuss the library's role in STEM retention beyond the ALA Annual Conference 2014.
