The start of a new academic year always fills the campus with excitement and activity. In the library, we know the fall semester is right around the corner when we meet with our colleagues from the Office of Student Engagement and Leadership to plan Connect Fest. Connect Fest was first held in the library in May 2014. This event brings students, faculty, staff, campus support services, and community organizations together to share information in a relaxed atmosphere with food and (yes) prizes. What better way to get energized for a new year of learning than by learning all the college has to offer! Fall 2019 marks the ninth time the library will host Connect Fest. This year it’s being held on Wednesday, September 11th, from 11am to 1pm in the library. We hope to see you there!
A few friendly reminders: If you teach a class with a research paper or project, sign your class up for information literacy instruction with a librarian by calling 440 525-7425 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, your students really appreciate it when you put the textbooks for your classes on Course Reserves, which just happens to be the library's Service of the Month. Ask Paul Zachlin about how the Math Department is using Course Reserves to make college more affordable for Lakeland's students.
