Making Cents: Librarians Cashing in on Financial Literacy Institutional Repository Document uri icon

abstract

  • During this workshop, librarians from Texas A&M University will showcase a collaboration with Texas A&M University's Money Education Center. As part of a new campus initiative focused on increasing student financial literacy, a personal finance class was created. As part of this class, librarians present a session on financial literacy through an understanding of advertising and consumerism. Audience members will leave with a better understanding of ways in which departments can collaborate with librarians to support student success through financial literacy, as well as specific ways that librarians can offer help to students.
