Undergraduate research experiences provide undisputed benefits to students. By offering services and tools to engage, support, and promote undergraduate work, the library plays a key role in attracting and retaining an institution’s best and brightest students. In this talk, Kathleen Spring (Collections Management Librarian and Associate Professor at Linfield College) explains how library services and an institutional repository work in tandem to create experiential learning opportunities for undergraduates while simultaneously highlighting their research. Spring addresses strategic lessons to promote the originality and academic enterprise of your students and emphasize the library’s role in cultivating a mission of undergraduate success.
