Too often campus culture adopts an Us vs. Them attitude. In reali- ty, we are all in the fight together, dealing with a new generation of students, rising textbook costs, and budget crises that arise on a seemingly daily basis. In our presentation, we will look at collabo- rative efforts where librarians partner with faculty in financing pur- chase agreements, tenure and promotion strategies, digital reposi- tory efforts, embedding strategies, and alignment between library instruction and university initiatives such as writing intensive cours- es. Embrace the faculty. They are not the enemy – they are your comrades in arms!
