Welcoming New Stags to the Library

On June 21st and June 27th the DiMenna-Nyselius Library welcomed the class of 2021 with open arms...and lemonade. While students waited to register for classes they congregated outside of the Library and visited the "Library Lemonade Stand" under the tent on the lawn. Besides getting a cup of free refreshing lemonade students could pick up the latest library designed buttons and chat with friendly staff about library services. Check out proof of all the fun below.

In addition to the library lawn presence, families could learn more by visiting the Information Fair at the RecPlex. There was information about databases, group study rooms, the writing center, interlibrary loan, library hours, 24/7 research help and more. The Personal Librarian Program was also promoted. Each first-year student is automatically paired with a personal research librarian to introduce them library services and collections. Students are contacted 8-10 times within their first year with research tips and encouraged to schedule a meeting or reach out for help.

New stags (and parents) signed up to follow the library on Facebook, or Instagram & Twitter for a chance to win StagBucks. Winner to be contacted on June 29th.  Follow @FairfieldULib for news about upcoming events and library happenings.
