Description

At the inaugural 2018 POC in LIS Summit, Jené Brown (LAPL Principal Librarian, Engagement & Outreach) and Ray Andrade (LMU Student Engagement Librarian) crossed paths and learned about their respective institutions' outreach initiatives. Ray learned about LAPL's Diversity and Inclusion Apprenticeship (DAIA) program to support LAPL library staff and high school and college students interested in librarianship, and Jené learned about LMU Library Outreach programs such as tours, orientations, and Careers in Academic Librarianship panels. The following summer (2019) they joined forces for a summer program featuring a back-to-back LMU Library Tour and Careers in Academic Librarianship panel, and in 2020 they successfully transitioned both events to an online format - including a live, virtual 360° LMU Library Tour. Based on survey results and participant feedback, this partnership between a public and academic library has been a success!

For anyone interested in learning about LAPL’s DAIA program and/or how to partner with LMU’s library for similar ventures (or how to leverage 360° technology for virtual tours) this roundtable discussion is for you!
