dc.description.abstractAuburn University Libraries is exploring new ways to reach users by rethinking and redefining traditional library orientations and open houses. Last year’s “Tailgate at the Library” event, held at the beginning of Fall Semester, attracted 1800 participants, who enjoyed hot dogs, popcorn, and guest appearances by the Auburn cheerleaders and marching band INSIDE the library. AU librarians hosted and briefed nearly 1000 parents of incoming students at a series of “Snacks in the Stacks” sessions held during freshman orientation. New and returning students visited the Libraries’ outdoor “Information Oasis” tent during the first two days of class to pick up maps, information, and cold, bottled water. Stop by the poster, check out the photos, and learn how you can develop innovative and exciting programs to gather users under the tent of your choice!en_US
