Traditionally, academic library outreach has meant reaching out to the campus community, providing services to faculty and students. Many universities and colleges, however, now have a new or renewed emphasis on outreach beyond the campus, seeking to ensure their institutions' relevance to the community at large. How can and do academic libraries participate in this type of outreach? What types of collaborations or partnerships are academic libraries forming with schools, public libraries, or community groups? How do academic librarians partner with faculty or campus departments on their community projects? What role does service-learning play? Nancy Courtney has assembled a sampling of approaches, from the innovative to the tried-and-true, each written in the voice of its strongest champion.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Courtney (outreach and engagement, Ohio State U.) presents 22 chapters that explain how academic libraries can move outreach beyond the campus and into the community. Librarians from a variety of academic institutions in the US describe ways to promote outreach and the philosophies behind them. They discuss specific programs and general principles for engaging K-12 students and the general public, international outreach, information literacy, using events and programming and special collections, collaborating with public libraries and cultural institutions, and digital library programs, as well as discipline-oriented outreach in the areas of government, health, law, medicine, and management and economics." - Reference & Research Book News
"This is a valuable work not only for academic libraries, but also for other libraries or institutions and organizations seeking to collaborate with an academic library." - ARBA
