Benefits of hosting an Open House in the Academic Library

library_openhouse2011_croppedv2Hosting an open house is a good time for an academic library to advertise all of their services especially collaborative services geared towards professors and other departments.

Check out Stanford University Libraries’ large scale open house. They attract students, staff, and faculty with tours, special appearances, prizes and giveaways as well as listing all of their participants.  This helps to foster the collaborative work with professors for the coming academic year. It also helps to alleviate library anxiety to make an event of it and treat it like a large party.

Stanford University Libraries invite patrons to “Come to Green Library to find out about the amazing resources offered by campus Libraries and Academic Computing.”
