English abstract

This paper details a successful collaborative partnership among the faculty and librarians at Drexel University with the IEEE. The primary groups involved in the partnership were the IEEE liaisons and leaders, the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department of the Drexel University College of Engineering, the Drexel University Libraries, the Drexel Student Branch of IEEE, and IEEE personnel. This innovative collaborative relationship was based on the IEEE University Partnership Program (UPP). From 2000 to 2004, unique activities and events were held to attract new students to the IEEE and encourage students to use IEEE Xplore, a premier electronic resource providing full-text access to IEEE transactions, journals, magazines and conference proceedings. Additional benefits of these events and activities included: improved information awareness and information literacy among the event participants, improved teamwork and communication skills in the members of the Drexel IEEE Student Branch who had to plan, promote, coordinate, and moderate events for students from Drexel and surrounding institutions, and partial rebates to the library for their subscription to the IEEE information product (contingent on predetermined IEEE Student Branch membership goals).
