Title: Science Experiments: Reaching Out to Our Users
Author: Barrett, Laura; Nolan, Maureen; Parsons, Matthew; Tschirhart, Lori; Whang, Linda; Wright, Stephanie
Abstract: As we all know, it has become increasingly important for librarians to reach out to their user communities and promote the value of libraries. Convincing the faculty and students in the sciences of the value of libraries and librarians can be a particularly “hard-sell” as more and more of their primary journal literature becomes available online anywhere from any computer. Join a panel discussion with five science librarians from the University of Washington as we discuss both the traditional and unconventional ways we have tried to engage our users. Learn how we meet them in their spaces, lure them into ours, and use the middle ground that is the internet, all with creative initiatives that utilize blogs, give-aways, geocaching, and more!
