For the fourth year in a row, William T. Young Library Reference Services hosted a beginning-of-semester Welcome Desk in the atrium of Young Library. Staffed by volunteer faculty, staff, and students from across UK Libraries, the desk was the place students, parents, and other campus visitors could go for answers to all types of questions not only about UK Libraries, but also about the UK campus and community.
In addition to handing out brochures, maps, and UK Libraries promotional items, faculty and staff answered questions including one of the most popular, “Where’s the new Starbucks?”
The Welcome Desk operated from August 19 to September 2 and answered a total of 2,094 questions. Thanks to everyone who welcomed our new students and their families.
