ACRL announces the publication of Environments for Student Growth and Development: Libraries and Student Affairs in Collaboration, edited by Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe and Melissa Autumn Wong.
Environments for Student Growth and Development focuses on collaborations between campus student services and libraries.

Also included is a bibliography of selected publications on student affairs, strategies for collaboration and library and student affairs collaborations.
