Each year the Libraries host an open house specifically for graduate students. It’s a great opportunity for students to meet the librarian for their subject area, learn about the library services that will support them, and get to know library faculty and staff. Last year the Library Friends hosted a table at the open house and introduced graduate students to the work that the Friends do to support the Libraries. We’re planning to do this again and need your help! Can you help to staff the Library Friends table on Friday, August 23, from 1:00 to 2:30 pm? Please contact Jeff Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Erin Horeni-Ogle (email@example.com) today.
Also, would you be willing to underwrite graduate student memberships in the UT Library Friends, at $5 each? With a student membership, graduate students will receive the Libraries’ publications, e-newsletter, and invitations to library events. Last year one of our Library Friends sponsored student memberships, and it was a fantastic opportunity to engage students in conversations about supporting the UT Libraries. Great impact for a relatively low cost! Contact Erin (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would be willing to sponsor student memberships this year.
