The value of academic libraries is established by demonstrating support for student and faculty success, however, our role and value is expanding as a result of the demands to transform the academy; making college education more affordable, increasingly accountable for performance, increasing student access, while controlling costs. These extraordinary challenges for colleges and universities are opportunities for libraries to provide key leadership and support strategies that open doors for transformation and sustainable practices that enhance teaching, learning, research and scholarship.

This talk focuses on a set of high-impact strategies that support student and faculty success by developing open access digital scholarship, publishing open textbooks, and providing student scholar internships. The presentation will provide useful ideas that draw from experiences with Open SUNY Textbooks, Digital Thoreau, Humboldt State University Press, and the HSU Library Scholar Internship program. Attendees will understand practical library tactics that can become crucial assets to campuses, and emerge as key strategies for transforming higher education.
