Mar'15: Boomerang Library Users: Implementing Effective, Enriching and Educational Library programs for target users to Learn and Return (RUSA)

Wednesday, March 18, 2015 - 10:30-11:45 a.m. (Central)

This webinar will present examples from the successful programming of Cal Poly Pomona University Library’s celebrations of National Library Week and Library Welcome Week for incoming students and the campus community.  Participants will receive surveys and data of the developing stages of ideas for programs, from how they were selected and planned to the implementation.

This webinar will inspire a more structured approach to assessing your community of library users and their needs/wants of learning new skillsets and raising awareness of valuable librarians and services.  This webinar will also provide examples of creative approaches to implementing programs for these library users to become boomerangs that will learn and return.  This webinar will also offer assessment tools for a postmortem assessment of library programs for librarians to analyze the successes and shortcomings; the positives and pitfalls for improving upon implementing future programs regardless of budget.  Participants will also receive creative examples of programming with or without funding.
