Becoming an Event Planner

Wednesday, March 28 | 11:15AM–12:00PM ET | Ballroom D/E
Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster Session
As the Cardinal Cushing Library at Emmanuel College has transformed over the past year, its role has also evolved. In December of 2016, Karen Storin Linitz became the associate dean for library and learning resources. During this time, the shift to becoming a learning commons began, including physical changes to the library, which occurred this past summer. In addition to these changes to the facility, our role as librarians shifted to include programming. We focused our efforts on connecting with the community and engaging in academic dialogue outside the traditional reference interaction and information literacy formats.

Outcomes: Identify strategies for implementing outreach activities * Identify at least 2 departments at your institution for possible collaboration * Identify, with the use of an information aid, the key steps in planning an outreach event
