Researchers and their academic library partners will illustrate their direct impact on local communities. Speakers will explore the collaboration of researchers and academic libraries involved in community-engaged learning, service, and scholarship through two current UNLV projects – one that teaches community members about business opportunities using librarian curated resources and strategies, the other an oral history project that engages and strengthens ties within the local African-American community.
