Engaging Students as Library Ambassadors and Volunteers: The Pitts Library Scholars Program

Although students are often in the library, using resources and engaging collections, they can also be a rich source of support for library goals. In the 2016-2017 academic year, the Pitts Theology Library piloted a “Library Scholars Program” that offered exceptional graduate students the opportunity to participate in discussions that guide the future of the library. As a part of the program, students have created and executed a project in one of three areas: research, pedagogy, or community engagement. Current student projects include work with special collections items, the creation of Research Guides, and working with exhibits.
This presentation will share the results of this year's pilot program. It was our hope that the Scholar projects would allow students to gain valuable academic and professional experience. We also hoped that these projects would spark the interest of each individual scholar, as they partner with librarians to enhance Pitts offerings in service of the broader community. Through their work, these students will also act as library ambassadors, serving as a vital point of connection, collaboration, and accountability.
