Six weeks out from Snapshot Day and registrations are coming in – more than 20 libraries have already signed up to participate this year. Will you be the next?
Today’s guest blogger is Kim Cochrane from the Henry Whittemore Library at Framingham State University, talking about the special ways in which academic libraries can benefit from being a part of Snapshot Day:
Snapshot Day is a great time to showcase your library – academic, school, public, and special libraries should all take part of this important exposure opportunity.
Academic libraries have the advantage of a mostly over-18 patron base, all of whom are able to grant permission for their photos to be used online. We have thoroughly enjoyed our Snapshot Days here at Framingham State; sometimes we have special events going on that we can boast about, and sometimes we just showcase our busy library as-is.
Alumni appreciate seeing the changes that have happened in the library since they left the hallowed halls, and our current students love to post their own selfies, proving to their families that they do come to the library to study.
I hope our fellow academic libraries will join us as we support and participate in Snapshot Day during the week of April 7th – 11th!
