Supporting the Whole Person with Student Basic Needs Services [video replay]
On February 23, 2021 the ACRL University Libraries Section Professional Development Committee sponsored a presentation on supporting the whole person with student basic needs services. College students across the country are struggling to meet their basic needs while attending school, including facing housing, food, and fiscal insecurities. As information experts, library workers can play a critical role in connecting students to basic needs services on campus and in the community. In this presentation, a librarian and a student program coordinator discuss student basic needs services offered at a public university and how the library and library workers can partner in these crucial efforts.
