3. Acclamations and Accolades

Lisa noted that Paula Kaufman allocated $10,000 of the Library’s one-time funding to support LibGuides creation, send someone to Immersion (teacher or program track), and bring an assessment speaker to campus.

Carissa shared that she was very pleased with the turnout of nine students at a recent non-credit Market Information Lab event. She was particularly excited to see students participate outside of events required for courses.

Adriana shared that a recent adult day care center visit to The Sousa Archives and Center for American Music (SACAM) was a success. She mentioned that it was a rewarding experience and noted how excited and engaged the group was—so much so that they didn’t want to leave at the end of the visit.
