The Small and Rural Academic Library

Academic librarians at small and rural libraries often work with limited resources - small staffs, limited materials, and facilities budgets. This collection of case studies and interviews reveals how librarians at small and rural academic libraries are mitigating challenges through innovative and creative solutions, while also creating new opportunities to engage, serve, and support their academic communities.

This event will showcase USCA faculty authors across the disciplines and their publications. In a round-table format, authors will have an opportunity to discuss their books, give a brief reading, or offer insights into the process behind writing to small groups of students and other interested guests. The purpose of the event is to promote awareness of faculty achievements and to offer students a glimpse into the experience of writing fiction, non-fiction, and technical writing.
