Textbook Equity and Service-Learning: A Match Made in Heaven?

Posted on Thursday, May 4th, 2023

Our post today is by SLL Librarian facilitator, Anne Marie Gruber, Liaison & Textbook Equity Librarian at University of Northern Iowa.

As we approach the end of another academic year and I approach mid-career, I'm finding myself being reflective about my roles, my institution (University of Northern Iowa), my impact, and my connections with students, faculty, and colleagues. It's from that stance that I write this post, which I fully admit is an ill-formed thought experiment!

SLL blog purpose

Posted on Friday, February 26th, 2021

As the editorial team prepares to relaunch the Service-learning Librarian blog, we reviewed the blog's purpose. We envision this blog as the hub of a wheel, connecting those in academic libraries supporting service-learning efforts on their campuses. Our work may look different in our various settings, but we can learn from each other. To use another metaphor, a tree as the blog's new graphic shows, library workers can and do support the growth and vitality of community engagement and impact.
