Come find out more about the new SLA Competencies and how it can help you frame this issue.

Embedded Librarian Posters: Nadine Anderson, Behavioral Sciences Librarian

Nadine Anderson: Poster

This poster is for my role as the embedded Behavioral Sciences Librarian at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. My faculty already know me well,  so this is geared towards my students in the Behavioral Sciences; to get my name and face out there as someone who can help them with their research from my office in the Behavioral Sciences department so they know they don’t have to traipse all the way across campus to the library to get research help. I’ve put this poster up in several prominent places around the Behavioral Sciences department: on the door to the Behavioral Sciences office, in their graduate student lounge, and in the Behavioral Sciences computer lab. I’ve received great feedback from my faculty on it, students seem to recognize me a lot more, and I’m getting more “drop ins” for research help at my Behavioral Sciences office. This poster has been a great marketing tool!

Embedded Librarian Posters: Laura Williams, Reading List & Collection Development Librarian

Laura Williams: Poster and Postcard

In my role as Reading List and Collection Development Librarian at the University of Huddersfield for the Business School, I’ve made use of both a poster and a postcard to promote myself and the help I can provide to academic staff.
I designed this postcard to introduce myself to all the academic staff in the Business School, with the intention of letting them know who I am, and what I can do for them. My office is located in the library rather than the Business School, and I’m new to the university, so the postcard was a good way to get the message out to the 140 plus academics in the school. A postcard was sent to every member of academic staff, in a hand addressed envelope, to separate it out from the marketing post they likely recieve. I’ve had more people recognise me around the building now, and know who I am when we meet for one to one training appointments.

To complement the postcard I also created a poster to use when I’m out roving in the school offering drop in support to staff, helping with their reading lists.

I take the poster out with me, and put it up boards around the building, whenever I am doing any ‘roving’ work in the Business School. By having a poster specifically tailored to my role, rather than the library, I am able to catch people’s attention.
