Promoting the Library

We help spread the word about library resources, services, and expertise on- and off-campus.  We take care to consider the audience to identify the most effective and comprehensive communication plan for every project. Feature stories, digital bulletins, social media, brochures, posters, promotional items, email communication, blog entries, photography, and press releases are just a few of the tools at our disposal.  Please contact us to initiate a promotion.
