Sometimes, having a degree isn’t enough. Today’s college graduates are expected to enter the workforce with technical skills on par with those who’ve been in the job market for years. To prepare their students for employment, many universities are relying more and more on their libraries to help develop those skills.
Learn how academic libraries can play a major part in the curriculum that ensures their students are competitive once they enter the job market. In this panel discussion, you’ll hear from:

• Employers on what skills they look for in new graduates
• College students on what technical skills they’re learning at their universities, how they use the library, and what resources they need to be more prepared for the workforce
• Academic librarians on innovative ways they provide a variety of content for research and learning

Come prepared with your questions for this lively panel, and come away with a better understanding of how your library can support existing curriculum that ensures students are more likely to be hired upon graduation.
