Description: 

Let’s try it out – Robertson Library actively promotes the Library not only as a research and study environment, but also as a welcoming space for students to relax, engage, learn, and have fun! We offer various outreach events throughout the academic semesters – escape rooms; a stargazing evening; a PJ party; pop-up surprises and a stress free zone with games, crafts, and a photo-booth during the exam period; book, movie, and research talks in collaboration with various campus faculties and departments; Spooktacular tales; an Open Mic evening– to name a few. Discover which events were the most successful!
Learning Objectives:

  • Gain new ideas for library outreach events
  • Learn which outreach activities were successful and which were not
  • Recognize the benefits of collaborative relationships with campus faculties and departments
