Abstract

Our ability to enrich our communities, variously defined, through library collections, facilities, and services, is based on community members being able to "discover" what the library can provide to them and to imagine new ways that libraries and librarians can be a meaningful part of their teaching, learning, scholarship, and more. Drawing on examples of innovative work done in recent years at DePaul University and across the City of Chicago, Scott Walter (University Librarian, DePaul University; Vice Chair, Board of Directors, Chicago Collections) will discuss how collaborating in the development of new platforms for "discovery" of library resources and expertise has led to greater recognition of the library as a foundational resource for the campus community, and beyond.
