Student Success & Library Use

Research at the U of MN linking student success to library use is in the spotlight again, this time on Boopsie for this good news report from the Association of College and Research Libraries.

Digital resources are great, of course, and we have subject specific pages too – but don’t dismiss a visit to your library. There are great print resources in each one, and friendly helpful staff – and you can find a coffee shop in Walter and Wilson too.

Excerpt from the entry in Boopsie:
“As college libraries foster accessibility and student engagement, they contribute to the success of their students through increased graduation rates, increased retention rates, and higher GPAs. When college libraries contribute to student success, they increase institutional prestige while preparing future leaders to meet the challenges of tomorrow’s world.”

NOTE:

Remote Access to Libraries’ Electronic Resources

Due to vendor licensing restrictions, access to many of the Libraries’ databases from outside a University library (e.g., from home or workplace) is limited to current students (in credit-earning courses), staff, and faculty at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities. This is a non-negotiable part of the contracts we sign (and there are no fee-for-access options for persons not affiliated with the University).
