Librarians met at the beginning of the fall semester to
decide new ways to provide services to students that they would be interested
in. They searched for topics by word of mouth and through surveys.
Shannon Maynard Educational Technology Serviced Coordinator
for Richardson library who helps organize Book-It said concerning the event, “Every
topic we have done has been a topic requested by students. It’s a good way for
students to use the library beside just for studying. You get to listen to a
professional and can have the opportunity to ask questions.”
This will be the last Book-It event for the spring semester,
but the library is gearing up for other events throughout the semester such as
for Easter and for receptions to celebrate new changes to the library. More
