This presentation will discuss strategies for working with students to impart project management and content creation skills. Student work drives many library projects, but too often students are not allowed to drive those projects. Instead of relying on comfort areas and ability to be contributors, the UNT Libraries have challenged students to be creators and are now leaving room in library projects for student creativity, innovation, and learning processes. The “Student Collaborators Bill of Rights” became a starting point to refine a system of project development and reporting that benefited both student and department. Letting students take the wheel was scary for UNT library staff at first, but that risk was worth the reward of seeing students go from cautious participants to confident practitioners.
