Odum Library Is Only Good For One Thing and That Thing Is Facebook!!

Who “owns” the library?
We like to think of the library as “mine” since we work there.
For academic libraries, the University likes to think of the library as “mine” since it is part of the larger institution.
The patrons think of the library as “mine” because it is designed for their use.
Take the compliment, and work with the patrons to get the word out about the Library!
