Roving Librarian Service

This week, we're introducing our roving librarian service!  The roving desk (actually a cleaning cart) will be scheduled to sit at the Student Union during the lunch time break. We're still working out a few kinks (we're short staffed...and there are a few issues with wireless strength in the Union), but we are really excited to offer this service to the campus community.  Many thanks to Anita Whitehead (Genesee Community College) for providing the inspiration for our mobile research cart. We love having the capability to take the reference desk anywhere on campus.

  1. A librarian at my institution tried this out last year in a busy hallway twice per week. The faculty and students both liked it and there were even REAL reference questions! I am looking forward to hearing about your Student Union experience and the type of questions you have in that environment. Such a great idea! :)
