Collection Development and Assessment


undergraduate research, collaboration

Learning Objectives

- identify challenges associated with collecting undergraduate research in the digital age
- identify opportunities to advance student learning by collaborating with faculty and administrators to collect undergraduate research


Why are colleges and universities increasingly interested in collecting undergraduate research? Do libraries have a responsibility to facilitate this collecting activity? What technology and intellectual property challenges are presented when collecting undergraduate research? This panel will address these questions from multiple perspectives within the academy and invite audience discussion.
