What Provosts Think Librarians Should Know

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Provosts and Librarians are naturally allies, but they live in different worlds and sometimes do not understand each other fully. This panel, chaired by one provost and featuring three others, will set out some of the main things Provosts are thinking about today that affect libraries and open the floor for discussion of how to advance common interests.  Topics will include some mix of innovation in teaching and learning, support for research, funding challenges for different sectors of higher ed, and the flurry of interest in online learning.

NOTE: Overflow seating is available for all plenary sessions in the Francis Marion Colonial and Gold Ballrooms.
