Using Students to Promote the Library

You can also read about here: Creating a BUZZ: Attracting SCI/TECH Students to the Library! The MIT article in that issue is very good too.

The U of Florida offers similar posters, however they use faculty. In my POV it works better to feature “celebrities” and student-athletes are the biggest draw—especially from a power conference like the ACC. I am trying to get a baseball player now since GT is ranked #1.
