ItemThe Feminist Library: “History is Herstory, Too”(University of Southern Mississippi, 2018) Dodd, Lauren B.The Feminist Library is not a typical public library; it is an organization with roots in the historical revolution. Its history, services, and classification system are unique; its collection is irreplaceable. The purpose of this study is to document the history, resources, and organization of the Feminist Library in London, England. ItemArmy, Art, Archives: Archival Engagement and Outreach in an Academic Service Academy Library(N/A, 2023-06-16) Mullooly, LoriThe United States Military Academy Library staff are incredibly interested in outreach and engagement with our Archives and Special Collections materials, and we often discuss as an institution the importance of capturing current cadet experience in multiple formats, such as physical and born-digital materials. We aim to ensure that future cadets have the resources to discover our current "Long Gray Line." To that end, a group of USMA Librarians created and executed a very successful Tiny Art Program and Magnificent Miniatures Exhibition. This presentation outlines how we combined academic library programming, exhibition, marketing, and digitization initiatives to inspire cadets to create original art that is inclusive of their experiences at West Point. These works of original art and images will serve as unique holdings for future generations to study to gain an understanding of what cadet life at West Point was like in 2022. The massive success of the Tiny Art Program and the Magnificent Miniatures Exhibition has allowed us to increase awareness of both the USMA Library and our Archives and Special Collections on campus and beyond. ItemPassive Programming as a Pathway: How to Engage with Heavily Scheduled Patrons(N/A, 2023-05-16) Mullooly, Lori; Chess, Jennifer; Gomez, LisaIt can be difficult to create academic library programs and exhibits that are interactive, scholarly, and popular. This is especially challenging at our academic library, where there is an exceptionally heavy demand for student time. This makes finding an acceptable time to host a library program particularly difficult. This poster presents a successful initiative at the USMA library: The Tiny Art Show “Magnificent Miniatures.” Several librarians worked together to create a passive library program that was then used to produce a major art exhibit. This collaboration allowed students to create original artwork and engage with one another, the exhibit, and the library collection in a unique and scholarly way. Ultimately, this art exhibit was digitized, which provided further engagement outside of the library and across the wider campus community. Importantly, all of this happened at the library and accommodated available student time. ItemInterlibrary Loan Marketing 101(N/A, 2022-09-15) Mullooly, LoriInterlibrary loan is a core service that our libraries provide, but it is often underused because it is an "invisible service" that many patrons are unaware of. Marketing is needed to create awareness, but often, this specific service is lumped in with general library marketing. More effective and targeted marketing strategies are needed. This presentation covers the basics of the “why”, the “who”, the "when" and the “how” of interlibrary loan marketing. It covers the importance of internal collaboration and will also provide a list of specific (and free) resources that can get you started on your marketing journey. ItemA Case of Collaboration: USMA Library's Tiny Art Show “Magnificent Miniatures”(N/A, 2023-04-23) Chess, Jennifer; Gomez, Lisa; Mullooly, LoriIn academic libraries, departments can be siloed and unaware of each other's activities. However, when colleagues stretch beyond these "walled gardens" the results can yield creative projects and a rewarding experience for students, faculty, and staff. This case study will present a successful initiative at the USMA Library: The Tiny Art Show “Magnificent Miniatures.” Several librarians with different and discrete roles worked together to create a passive library program, market that program across campus and then produce a major art exhibit. This collaboration allowed cadets to create original artwork and engage with one another, the exhibit, and the library collection in a unique and scholarly way. Ultimately, this art exhibit was digitized, which provided further engagement outside of the library and across the wider campus community. Participants will learn ways to adapt this program to their library, including scaling this program up or down.
