IEEE provided customized flyers Events in the Library seminar room Collaboration:  Collaboration IEEE Flyers for the events Instructional tip sheets with Drexel library’s web site information Budget for the speaker fees Faculty support Membership benefits to students through presentations and meetings with students Cost for refreshments Importance of IEEE Xplore in research and classes Support to the Library – not only attended events but strongly encouraged students to use IEEE and other resources Events:  Events July 30, 2002 Dr. Kam on IEEE membership Engineering Librarian on IEEE Xplore Students received free tee shirts on becoming members (tee shirts provided by IEEE) November 8, 2002 Patent Attorney – Martin Finston from Lucent Presentation delivered 3 times to 3 different freshman sessions. ( a total of 688 students) Patent research – necessary for design students Library web site promoted Events:  Events May 27, 2003 Event in the library. Similar to July 2002 event except a new ‘Tips and Tricks’ session Focus on finding prospective companies using IEEE to seek potential employment or finding universities with similar research interests to continue in graduate school October 9, 2003 Career path and networking event Five member panel consisting of Christopher Deephouse from GSI Commerce, and four Drexel alumnus Unique prize drawing – students bring citation using IEEE Xplore of an article by Deephouse Chance to win a palm m515 Events:  Events April 27, 2004 Event featured David Hamer – visiting research scholar at Bletchley Park Trust (cryptographic Museum) Enigma cryptographic machine Cryptography in world war II Students came from Cryptography class MP3 player in a special lottery drawing – IEEE supported Students needed to bring a citation on Enigma machine May 18, 2005 David Hamer – by popular student demand Benefits:  Benefits Vital lifelong skills reinforced Leadership, teamwork, planning, and promoting ideas with other participants outside classroom setting Received tips on how to be successful in job market Ideas on possible future career paths in academics or in industry Importance of IEEE membership Connecting course content with speaker events Interacting with David Hamer, students learned about codes, computer security and cryptography Benefits:  Benefits Patent research for design projects Relevance to their own projects Patent fundamentals Ethical aspects of invention Library Resources Use of IEEE Xplore in locating journal articles, conference papers and standards Awareness of library web site to access other resources as well Additional tip sheets at the reference desk. Long after the events, other students received them by coming to the reference desk Conclusions:  Conclusions Library, the faculty and the IEEE – all are instrumental in assisting students learn important life long learning skills Continue to work together for future collaborations Local and nearby universities can collaborate to organize future events Opportunities for local student chapters to work together Information sharing in the process Senior design students can try to get funding for their projects through such events Conclusions:  Conclusions Collaboration worked. New relationships were established and maintained. Numerous collaborative opportunities resulted: Library and faculty collaboration further enhanced Librarian and students worked together. Librarian and IEEE staff – collaboration succeeded not only in terms of activities but also successfully published a paper for the ASEE proceedings IEEE UPP program goals helped shape events and collaborations at various levels Librarians gained knowledge of student information needs IEEE Xplore is one of the most used electronic resources at Drexel Continue to explore innovative ways to support our students -------Thank you-------:  -------Thank you------- Our Contact information Jay Bhatt, Drexel University Email: bhattjj@drexel.edu Ruth Wolfish, IEEE Email: r.wolfish@ieee.org
