  • Introductions to every library member in the room.Thanks for filling out survey! Your answers will guide this presentation, questions, ask throughout!Association game! What words do you think of when you hear the world library?
  • *I’m expecting audience participation for today’s session! Whenever you see a slide with this bright purple background, it signifies a prize slide! For answering a question, you’ll get a lovely prize!When I say K-State University, what words do you think of?Now what about K-State Libraries?
  • These are the words I think of when I hear the word “library” and it is my goal that by the end of this presentation, many of you will also connect the library with these terms.
  • Undergraduate and Community Services: serve the undergraduates and community, including children and spousesFaculty and Graduate Services: serve graduate students and facultyOther departments: buy books, get subscriptions to databases, journals, etc.Julie: I serve as the liaison for first-year students…K-State First, University Experience.

  • Student Library Ambassadors. K-State Libraries are looking for undergraduate and graduate students with a strong interest in making a positive impact at K-State. Ambassadors will be advocates for K-State Libraries and serve as representatives to guests, alumni, prospective students and current students. Ambassadors will also advocate for the perspectives and needs of the student body. This is a great opportunity for students to get involved and build leadership skills. Look for advertisements in a few weeks!
  • Learn Your Library: Goodnow Hall RA requested a library program for her residents, so we created this! They came by for an hour, used collaboration stations, used our website, talked about what they use/didn’t understand/etc. and then ended with a library card game…In a Pickle style!Bulletin Board in a Bag: We can provide materials to Ras if they want to do a board about academic resources. My colleagues were joking about calling it “creating your scholarly arsenal”! We have 4 posters in total, not just these 2.Guide: Activity suggestionsGO TO INSTRUCTION REQUEST MENU
  • Fun: craft night; trivia night; game night (low impact introduction to library spaces and staff, set students up to feel comfortable coming to the library later for academic purposes, ask for help)One-time events: Banned Books Week discussion, Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys (books, films) will be hosting eventsAcademic: Research Rescue; Learn Your Library; Archives (history of K-State, dorms, sports, etc.), education in their spaces, tools of interest (Refworks, google scholar etc.) digital literacy type stuff, make fun infographics!
