How can librarians assist with student diversity and retention in the STEM and health science fields at their institution? During this session, three speakers will discuss how library services and instruction can aid student performance overall, as well as highlighting specific retention issues for student groups underrepresented in the STEM fields. Ample time will be provided for audience questions and discussion. This is a joint program between the ACRL Science and Technology Section and the ACRL Health Sciences Interest Group. The STS Poster Session will immediately follow.
