>…when you come back from a meeting and your face hurts from all the laughing. Yay for a fun group of librarians interested in podcasting!
We’re discussing our initial test for when the ordered equipment comes in, and we’re pondering a library tour (just in time for new students in the fall!). Since I’ll probably be the designated “expert” talking on the podcast for the GovDocs area, I’m pondering what items to highlight in the brief time alloted during the tour. Here are my initial thoughts:
- maps (specifically, geology students)
- lots of historic data, sources
- much of the information is public-domain
- online resources
- covers all subject areas
I don’t want to overwhelm new students with information, but specifically want to point out how relevant and interesting Docs are. Any other great ideas?
A Librarian’s Guide to Etiquette says:
Graphic novels, Embracing
Every library has at least one librarian who is a graphic novel enthusiast. This person will argue vehemently for a new graphic novel collection for your library. Give him a paltry budget to spend each year just to shut him up. It will be money well spent.
Hee, hee. So there are others out there.
