American higher education still struggles with low participation and graduation rates. Colleges and universities are experimenting with new student success efforts that look at the whole student. Academic librarians can support these holistic approaches.

When it comes to textbook issues, academic librarians and the campus bookstore should work together to give students affordable solutions.
