Debby Kramer, the Reference and Interlibrary Loan Librarian at Holy Family University, recently presented at the 2016 Tri-State College Library Cooperative (TCLC) Annual Spring Program on April 8, 2016 at Chestnut Hill College.
Presenting during a panel discussion titled, "Student Outreach: Ways to Connect through Library Programming," Kramer’s portion of the presentation was titled "Using PA Forward as a Framework." The presentation was an overview of recent activities and programs that the HFU Library staff has used as outreach to engage students and other Holy Family University related communities. It included programming in support of PA Forward's five literacy initiatives: basic, information, civic and social, health, and financial.
“Presenting at TCLC's Annual Spring Program, which focused on the impact that academic libraries can have on students, was a great opportunity to share information about the programming our library staff offers Holy Family students and members of the community,” Kramer said. “In preparing for this presentation, I was made aware of the wide variety of programs the library has offered our campus community. These efforts help to create a positive, caring, fun, and educational environment, which in turn can contribute to student retention.”
