Session Description

As we enter the age of Web 3.0, we need to work even harder to make sure that all West Virginians know that they are supported by WV libraries throughout their lifespans and beyond (= genealogy and WV history). WV public, school, and academic librarians need to work together to create an information literate population and to make sure that all our resources are used.

We can no longer serve only those who walk through the door. We have to serve those outside the library as well. We also have help patrons find the right library service at the right time – even if they are no longer a direct patron of our particular library. This means we have to know what our colleagues do and offer access to those services we do not offer. It also means that we have to make sure that we work with the other types of libraries in their efforts to educate an information literate WV citizenry..

At the WVLA Academic Division Summer Refresher (2018), I held a group discussion about creating a collaboration between public, school, and academic libraries in WV. This will be a presentation on what we talked about in at the Summer Refresher and a short survey, and also an audience discussion on how we can create a collaborative library community to make sure that our patrons know they have lifelong access to libraries and all types of libraries have something to offer.

I do not currently have any definite co-presenters, but I am looking into a public librarian, a school librarian, and possibly an educator from a school without a library. If I cannot get people who can actually attend, I will try to use taped interviews or possibly live streaming to have them address the audience. This has been the big delay in my submission.

__We’ve Got You Covered: Library Access from Conception to Grave: Public, School, & Academic Library Collaboration__ Alternate Title: Collaboration: When Libraries No Longer Have Walls, All Patrons Are Our Patrons
