Filming in the Library Sat. December 8th

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

Hi all,

This is a quick post to let you know that I have approved a film shoot in the library on Saturday December 8th. I am hoping that it is not too disturbing and instructed the students that they must leave the space in the condition they find it (or better). They also mentioned that they are bringing in their own books as props as they are going to be strewing them about on the floor so *hopefully* they won’t damage any library property.¬† They will be setting up in the back corner of the circulation stacks.

Upcoming Events at the Academy

Tuesday, November 13th, 2007

Hello everyone,

Here are two upcoming events that should be fun to attend. They both involve free food and provide good networking opportunities. The first is the Presidents Thanksgiving Dinner next Tuesday Nov. 20th from 11-2 at 601 Brannon. If you want to attend the dinner you need to sign up for a time. There was a University Broadcast with times available sent out on Nov. 13th. Please make sure and arrange coverage if you are usually on the desk during this time. Also the 12th Annual Faculty and Alumni Fine Art Auction is happening this Saturday, November 17, 2007 starting at 3 pm at the 79 New Montgomery Gallery. There will be food and wine and it should be a really fun event so please come out and enjoy if you have some time this weekend. There is also a preview event tomorrow evening from 5-8 pm with food and wine so consider taking a sneak peak over a glass of wine tomorrow.


Name our Library Blog

Monday, November 12th, 2007

This is a call out for suggestions for our soon to be published Library Blog. We need a catchy name that we can optimize for web searchibility as well as just something that folks will remember. Maybe this should be a contest… a nice little prize could be involved so please submit your suggestions.

Staff Meeting Time Change (Correction)

Thursday, November 1st, 2007


I need to change our monthly staff meeting from Wednesday Nov. 7th at 10:00 am to Thursday Nov. 8th at 10:00 am due to a conflicting meeting. Sorry for any inconvenience. If you cannot make this time please let me know.



 Thanks Lisa, I did indeed mean November rather than October!

Internet Librarian Conference 2007

Thursday, November 1st, 2007

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to report on a couple of the highlights of the conference. I went to several sessions including Online Marketing for Libraries, Multimedia Search Strategies, Strategic Approaches to the New Academic Library, Organization 2.0, Content and Commons Library 2.0, How to Lose your New Tech Librarian and Tech Training, and Whats hot with RSS. I also attended the Keynote speaker each morning and checked out the exhibition hall and all of the resources. I am confident that some of this will translate into new resources and services being offered here at AAU library. I plan on discussing some ideas I have about the library next week in our staff meeting.
