    Abstract:
    This presentation was based on the printmaking program at the University of Louisiana Lafayette that has played host to the visiting artist's printmaking collaborations in an established press that has been running for 20+ years, the output of which is housed at the university museum. The collection represents scholarship from a diverse body of artists and greatly adds to the inclusiveness of the creative community on campus while promoting service learning. One outcome from this endeavor included a collaboration between an artist/research librarian, the professor of printmaking/director of the press, and the museum curator of exhibitions. While collaborating at the press in the 20/21 academic year, this activity strengthened and built on a direct link to resources and support for the printmaking program from the library, while also aiding library instruction opportunities utilizing the print collection of the press and assets of the museum. It also positions a small mid-major intuition as having a serious, world-class collection of works on paper. The service learning press has the cooperation of an institution that can vouch for the quality of work being produced by the students and visiting artists.
