I spent a little time this morning updating the Twitter and Facebook pages for the library. A colleague has started working on the email blasts for events as well which should help us get out more publicity.
I also spent a little bit of time checking the displays. We had the Computer Lab for Academic Use today from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. I spent some time helping people get some pictures from the internet and search for jobs.
