The "Community Building" column in the journal, Reference and User Services Quarterly , published by the Reference and User Services Association of the American Library Association is a forum for sharing examples of public and academic librarians actively engaged with community or campus entities to demonstrate how involvement leads to meaningful community building outcomes.
COMMUNITY IDENTITY AND LITERATURE
A regional identity project demonstrates how effective builders of community must know who they are and must feel oneness with those around them. In southern Georgia, a partnership among libraries, a university, and a school system is working to foster a sense of regional identity among high school and college students, using fiction by a local author. Funding provided by the Georgia Humanities Council.
