NFIL asking for USA librarians' collaborations

The USA's National Forum on Information Literacy (NFIL) is "conducting an informal survey to see how many of America's 3000+ 2-4 yr college and university libraries are involved in the following:
1) actively engaged in IL programmatic collaborations with on-campus and/or off campus pre-college, remediation, and/or undergraduate retention programs and
2) have on-going collaborations with community-based organizations such as the Boys and Girls Clubs, YMCA, Year-Up, etc. Also please identify the type of engagement i.e., weekly involvement, orientation sessions, integrated in First Year Experience curriculum, etc."
NFIL president Dr. Lana W. Jackman asks that if you are in the USA and have anything to share, then to send your response to They will "summarize the results and post insightful comments anonymously on our website by the end of the summer."
