Summary, etc.:
The Experiential Library: Transforming Academic and Research Libraries through the Power of Experiential Learning features contributions--in a relatively conversational, practical, and "how-to" format--from various academic libraries across broad educational levels that have implemented experiential learning programs, services, or resources to enhance the learning and development of both students and library employees. As academic libraries and academic librarians are seeking ways to transform themselves and create collaborative synergies within and without their institutions, this timely book suggests exciting ways to integrate experiential learning into the library's offerings. Ranging from integrated service learning and Information Literacy instruction that "takes the class out of the classroom," to unique experiential approaches to programming like Course Exhibits and the Human Library, the book is a one-stop-shop for libraries looking to expand their repertoire. It will also help them create connections between experiential learning and their institutions' missions and contributions to student success, by grounding these programs and services on a sure methodological footing. Librarians and educators wishing to learn more about the connections between experiential learning/experiential education and academic libraries would benefit from the advice from authors in this book. Covers experiential learning for academic and research libraries. Presents diverse aspects of experiential learning in academic libraries across the spectrum of educational levels. Offers a one-stop-shop for librarians keen on bringing experiential learning to their institutions. Adds to current conversations in both LIS and experiential education, enabling further synergies in both disciplines.
