What does outreach through Reader’s Advisory look like at a large academic institution? U of MN Wilson Library Access and Information Services staff will discuss experiences increasing student engagement with themed displays, pop-up libraries, blind dates with books, and a book matchmaking service. Presenters will share what they’ve learned as well as tips about how to start outreach through fun reading at your library.
Slides from 2015 ARLD Day Lightning Round Presentations.
