Poster #19 -- Connecting Your Library to the Wider Campus Community Through Collaborative Displays

Feedback form is now closed.
Many of our previous displays highlighted books from our collection but lacked a clear hook to interest users. We decided to adjust our focus to curate a selection of items that would foster awareness of our collections while elevating the diverse voices and materials that we have to offer. To this end, we relocated our display area to a more visible location, worked to tie themes to campus events, and provided rigorously researched context to support our displays. For example, Winthrop hosted an Interdisciplinary Food Conference in February. We incorporated that theme into our display for Black History Month and created a display tracing African-American foodways and the development of soul food. These changes allowed us to work with other departments and to cross-promote events to help drive interest for all parties. The connections we made encouraged greater collaboration across campus—we were able to host a display for the Medieval Studies department that drew significant interest. The feedback we received from students, faculty and staff has been very positive, and we hope to build on our success this year by connecting with other members of the Winthrop community to promote our collections through our displays.
