Session Description

As academic institutions shift their focus to graduation and retention, libraries have begun reinforcing their relevance by filling newly created Student Success Librarian positions. This presentation will illuminate the first-year experiences of a Student Success Librarian learning to balance traditional academic librarian duties with the magnified expectation that everything they do or create should impact graduation, student success, and retention.
