Fostering Community and Students’ Creativity with Online Library Programming
August 3, 2021 – 1:00pm EST
While college libraries have had to limit public spaces and hours in the last year, staff members at NC State Libraries adapted quickly to offer engaging programming for students online. This has included streaming over Twitch, virtual tours of the newly renovated Hill Library, virtual Makerspace workshops, the State of Sound sessions, and various exhibits to showcase student work. Learn about how they reimagined programming during the pandemic and what tools they’re using to host events. Speakers will also share best practices and discuss how this growth of online programming will impact academic libraries in the coming year. Come learn how to facilitate students’ creativity before the semester starts!
