Meredith Schwartz, Executive Editor of Library Journal, and Jennifer Albers-Smith, Marketing Director, Academic and Special Libraries of Gale Cengage Learning, will co-present key findings from their recent joint study, Bridging the Librarian-Faculty Gap in the Academic Library. Schwartz and Albers-Smith will convene a panel that includes an academic librarian who works on innovative faculty support projects—Will Cross, Director, Copyright and Digital Scholarship of the North Carolina State University Libraries - and a faculty member TBD. Together they will discuss ways to act on the survey’s takeaways and improve connection, communication, and collaboration between faculty and librarians.
