USF SLIS Student Publishes Article in Digital Florida Libraries

FLA banner

The Florida Library Association (FLA)’s semi-annual publication, Florida Libraries, has stepped up to the digital age by moving from print to an online format.  The prestigious publication’s fall 2010 issue has just been released in a full-color digital edition.

In addition to the new format, this publication features, again, an article by a University of South Florida, School of Library and Information Science’s graduate student.  Judiann M. Rakes’ article, titled:  “The Power of Partnerships: Opening Children’s Minds Through Collaborative Early Learning Programs,” reports on the collaborative partnership developed between the Volusia County’s Daytona Beach Regional Library and the Early Learning Coalition of Flagler and Volusia (ELCFV.) In times when collaboration is seen as a potential way of maximizing resources, Rakes’ article highlights a successful model that could be followed in other parts of the State.

It was a pleasure interviewing all the people mentioned in the article.  Plus, I hope the article inspires the formation of additional efficient community partnerships,” Rakes said.

The fall 2010 edition of Florida Libraries can be accessed by FLA members at their website.
