Join over 50 library staff in the SML nave on March 10, 1-4pm, for a showcase of some of the fascinating work going on behind the scenes at the Library.
Over the last few years, the staff of the Yale University Library has been showcasing their work at an annual event sponsored by the Library Staff Appreciation and Recognition Committee (L-SARC). Because of the growing enthusiasm and positive feedback, the event is now being opened to the full Yale community and to the wider public.
Just a few examples of the work that will be on display include the cataloging of Ajami texts from West Africa; reducing stress and promoting mental health through the use of therapy dogs in the library; treasures from the South Asian and Southeast Asian collections; a variety of digital collections available through the Divinity Library; and several projects showing how technology, research and data are impacting the work of the library. All in all, there will be about 50 presenters from all across the Yale Library system.
The event will take place in the beautifully renovated nave of Sterling Memorial Library. Staff will be on hand to give demonstrations and to talk about their work – this is something you don’t want to miss!
Feel free to stop by and help us spread the word about this wonderful opportunity to see some of the behind-the-scenes work going on in the Yale Library.
