Abstract: Librarians at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) University Libraries devel-oped the “Student Affairs Connection” program in order to market the Libraries to students in co-curricular settings and to collaborate more closely with the Student Affairs Division. The pro-gram also provides the opportunity to seek student input on Libraries’ services and resources and to communicate directly with them in a variety of ways. The program has multiple facets: a liaison program where librarians are assigned to specific student organizations and services such as Student Government and Residence Life, a Student Libraries Advisory Council (SLAC) representing diverse groups of students that meets with librarians several times a year, staffing a Libraries’ table and providing information and giveaways at information fairs, and sponsoring special events such as Game Night each semester.
