Connect, collaborate and cultivate: an example of community collaboration in a private tertiary institute [poster]

Asia-Pacific Library and Information Conference 2018, 30 July - 2 August 2018 Gold Coast: Roar Leap Dare
 
This conference poster presentation illustrates that by stepping beyond the traditional borders of the library and engaging with local communities, a tertiary library is able to play its part in fostering and developing information literacy, art, culture, and language in the wider community. This also provides positive exposure for the library service and the tertiary institute as a whole and could result in higher student retention rate in the future.
