Nearly 1,000 questions answered at W.T. Young Library “Survivor” information desk
UK Libraries faculty, staff and student workers from across the library system welcomed students to campus in the lobby of William T. Young Library. The “Survivor”-themed staffed information desk in the atrium featured “Ask Us Live!,” a prize wheel and treats. It operated for three weeks with faculty and staff providing information on how to find articles and books, tips on computer access and printing, directions to classes, and more. The “On the Hunt: Librarians As Your Guide” event in the Hub downstairs provided another opportunity for students to learn about library services and resources and included prize giveaways and cookies. This was the fifth year for the specially staffed welcome desk. Thank you to everyone who welcomed our new students and their families to campus!
