Don't forget that the Library Open House is on Tuesday, October 9 from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m.
Again, we are asking all library staff to consider yourselves as co-hosts of the Library Open House. As you visit the various tables and displays at the Open House, please take the initiative to greet students and faculty, answer their questions, and guide them towards the exhibits of interest to them. This is the perfect time and venue to put your concierge skills in action.
As good hosts, please remember that the limited number of drawing prizes and giveaways are intended for our guests and patrons.
To entice the passers by, we are extending the boundaries of this year’s Open House. Many of the participants will be stationed outside of the Green Library East entrance, in addition to those located around the lobby and Information Center area. Participants will be highlighting SUL's vast services and resources, and will include most of the campus libraries, Special Collections, Digital Humanities, SUL in Second Life, and many more.
This year, Stanford’s own radio station, KZSU (90.1 FM), will be broadcasting live, featuring some music from our Music Library collections, as well as engaging in live chat sessions. There will be a curated tour of the new exhibit: Scripting the Sacred: Medieval Latin Manuscripts; the newest information/tips on SearchWorks, xSearch, RefWorks, Mendeley, and Zotero will be presented; and the very popular Robotic Book Scanner tours are back. Fun giveaways and a drawing for prizes will round out the event.
