About

The First Year Experience Discussion Group of ACRL/NY (FYEDG) aims to offer a platform for the discussion, presentations, workshops and exchange of ideas relating to the role of the librarian in providing service to first-year students in higher education. Topics that may be considered include student preparedness and transition issues, transfer student populations, cross-campus collaborations, outreach and a wide range of literacy programs and workshops – and will include discussion on ways to reach out to students as well as teaching faculty. This group may be of interest to librarians working with first-year students in all academic settings (community colleges, four-year colleges, research universities) as well as those working in the high-school setting.  We welcome suggestions for and participation in our FYEDG events and encourage newcomers to join ACRL/NY as well as ACRL national.

For information about joining this group, please contact the ACRL/NY FYE Discussion Group Co-Chairs Mark Aaron Polger and Carl Andrews at MarkAaron.Polger@csi.cuny.edu or Carl.Andrews@bcc.cuny.edu
