Library/student partnerships redefine tomorrow's libraries

In this paper we will describe an active collaboration with students at San Diego State University in order to redefine current library services and staffing and establish a national dialog about innovative ways to meet the research needs of current students. We will also convey student leaders’ perspectives on why students at San Diego State University voted for two fee referendums providing nearly $2 million to change library facilities and resources to meet student needs. Finally, we will share information on how to gather a rich array of feedback from students from the library that received more LibQual responses than any other. Substantial and continuous student feedback support more meaningful strategic planning decisions
