2012 Library Workshop
2012 Library Workshop: “The New ABCs for Libraries: Assessment…Basics…Creativity”
Some 40 library staff members from all five CRC colleges and universities gathered again this summer (July 12th) at William Peace University to share expertise and ideas. The workshop again focused on expertise shared among members, including presentations by NC Live’s Tim Rogers (below left showing his connection to Sherlock Holmes) and Meredith’s library dean Laura Davidson (below right). And all kinds of expertise was shared among staff members from the five colleges throughout the day.
Workshop planning committee members included Nate Hellmers from Peace (kneeling), Karen DeWitt from NCSU (right), Musette McKelvey from Shaw (middle from back), Carrie Nichols from Meredith and Jennifer Townes from Saint Augustine’s.
