Who We Are: Partner with Us

The Schumann Library aims to partner with the WIT community in achieving the educational goals of the Institute. In addition to working with faculty and students in the classroom, in building our library collections and services, we are interested in new ways we can collaborate to highlight faculty and student work, or innovative activities on campus. Learn more about existing partnerships, and ways you might think of working with us in the future. To find out more, please contact Kevin Kidd, Director of the Library, kiddk@wit.edu 617-989-4095.

Ongoing Partnerships

Faculty Recognition Program

Wentworth Institute of Technology's Faculty Promotion Recognition program, sponsored by President Zorica Pantić and supported by the Douglas D. Schumann Library & Learning Commons, strives to honor faculty members for all of their hard work and recent promotion. Each newly promoted faculty member selects a book for the Library's collection, which is then put on display for a period in the Library, after having been inscribed with a commemorative bookplate from the respective faculty member explaining the meaning of their selection.

Student Library Advisory Committee

Mission

Schumann Library & Learning Commons supports the information needs of the WIT Community.  The Student Library Advisory Committee (SLAC) will meet with library staff to any library matters involving students.  These will include library services, policies, materials and programs.  SLAC members will represent the student body.  SLAC members will serve as Library ambassadors to the WIT community.  They will discuss library issues with other students to help shape library policies, services, and collections.

Exhibits in the Library

The Guarracino Family Gallery in the Douglas D. Schumann Library & Learning Commons and the CEIS Showcase in the Center for Engineering, Innovation and Sciences provide wonderful spaces where Wentworth students, faculty and staff can publicly exhibit project work, art, and scholarship. Exhibits also provide an excellent opportunity for faculty and students to partner with the Library to engage in collaborative projects.

Our goal is to further the Institute’s educational mission by publicly displaying and celebrating the creativity and intellectual accomplishments of the Wentworth community.

Exhibits will be considered on individual merit and all submissions are encouraged.

Interested in proposing an exhibit? Please see our exhibit guidelines for more information.
