Abstract

In this article, we discuss a collaboration between library employees of Library West and LACC to facilitate access to voting information and promote civic engagement among UF students. This collaboration resulted in the creation of a voting guide, a voting rights display, and a social media campaign, and bilingual voting plan cards.  

By including ways for students to learn about the issues and to get involved in the political process, we can further promote information literacy, civic literacy, and civic engagement on campus and beyond, therefore fulfilling UF’s goal of providing “an outstanding and accessible education that prepares students for work, citizenship and life.”
