Abstract:The IMLS funded project Transforming Libraries into Community Anchors in Rural Texas (TLCART) supports the use of information and communication technology in community engagement in rural Texas. This poster presentation showcases community projects initiated by students of the cohort demonstrating one of the project goals to embed community engagement into student learning. Students are asked to dream, research and plan for desired changes for sustainable community improvement. Research to support the proposed projects includes understanding demographics, studying community needs, identifying stakeholders and collaborators, planning for budget and timeline, and assessment of intended outcomes. Cohort students will continue their projects with community coalition building activities and develop their design and implementation plans in their coursework in Summer and Fall 2020.
