Cupcake socials, classes taught by reference librarians, laptop loaners, and faculty and liaison orientations. These are just a few of the many things Library has already offered this semester and it’s just September.
Working in Langsdale Library has afforded me the opportunity to observe many of my colleagues spend countless hours organizing and planning to continually investigate better ways to serve Faculty/Staff and students.
We’ve combined Reserves, Intercampus and InterLibrary Loan in one Department (Book and Document Delivery) to provide knowledgeable resource sharing services to the University community. Our new student liaison Dawn Lamb will serve as a bridge between students and the Library by communicating and informing students about updates and information in regards to the Library. We’ll take Read Posters at designated times throughout the Semester. (Keep an eye out in October for information for Read Posters taken in your Halloween costume!)
As we head into mid-terms in the not too distant future, start getting acquainted with who’s who in the Library, what department can help you with what. Who is the Reference Liaison for your discipline. What things can you get accomplished at the Circulation desk. Try not to wait until the night before the paper is due while you are in panic mode
We here at Langsdale are constantly working and thinking of ways to involve you in the Library, and to serve you, striving to make it fun and informative. Browse the website and read the Langsdale Link and the daily digest for upcoming workshops and events.
So come on, venture over, we know there’s construction going on nearby, but it’s UB, and it’s the city. There will always be something going on! Take Advantage!!
