Learning Outreach

The Learning Outreach Department participates in activities and partnerships that help connect users with Library, resources, and the broad PSU community.  The Learning Outreach Department works with faculty, staff, and students to promote their art, creative works, literary projects, and more in the library space.

Outreach to Faculty and Academic Departments

Academic departments and faculty are encouraged to contact Jorge Leon and Ruth Monnier in the Learning Outreach Department if they want to collaborate on a joint event or project.
Previous projects have included developing a speaker series, curating book displays, developing space to display student works, and helping judge or advise on events.
