In an age of continually growing digitization, globalization, and abundant information, the value of academic libraries is greater than ever before. Libraries remain central to research and education as they ensure information access, foster innovation, encourage collaborative research, and promote information literacy skills vital to the success of tomorrow's leaders. This year at Wright State University we will focus on libraries leading to student success, and the overall value of the library. We will be hosting Regina Mays and Rachel Fleming-May, from the University of Tennessee. Regina will be focusing on a comprehensive approach to library value. Rachel will be focusing on the library's contribution to student success and teaching and learning.
