The Library gets Fresh!
Today is Warwick Freshers Fair, and for the first time the Library has a stand in the Student's Union, which I have been staffing for most of the day (apart from an hour when I had to rush across campus and do an induction session for some post-grad chemists - who, fortunately, did not seem to think my bright purple Freshers Fair tee-shirt was as hideous as I think it is).
I've just come back for my lunch break, and thought I'd throw a few thoughts down while I'm here.
It's going really well. The bags we had made (one of which is based on an original design of my own) are now being stuffed with Library fliers, bookmarks, pens, pencils and sweets (pieces of rock which read "Warwick Library Rocks!").
They are going down really well, and as I crossed campus to come back for lunch I spotted loads and loads of students carrying them around.
I hope that our new-found enthusuiasm for Library marketing, which seems to have coincided with the arrival of Antony Brewerton to the Library, (are these events linked? silly question!), is here to stay. We need to raise our profile, and I think we are off to a great start this year.
