Ames Library Partners

Collaboration is essential to establishing, strengthening, and sustaining library services, and to ensuring that the library continues to have an impact in the lives of our community. The Ames Library has made a strategic commitment to building, strengthening, and sustaining partnerships with colleagues across campus and throughout the community, including the major programs noted here. If you would like to discuss a new opportunity to partner with us to meet shared goals around teaching, learning, scholarship, and service at Illinois Wesleyan University or in the Bloomington-Normal community, please contact Scott Walter, University Librarian.

You can find a listing of our past featured partners here.

Featured Partnership: The Office of Diversity and Inclusion

 ODI - Students

The Ames Library partners with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) in support of our shared commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion on campus and the Social Justice and Diversity Room in The Ames Library. During 2019-20, we will be working with ODI and other campus colleagues to explore the impact of spaces such as the Social Justice and Diversity Room on student perception of an inclusive campus environment.
