We all want to find ways to reach out to students and faculty who don’t regularly come to into the library.  Heather Darnell, Library Media Specialist at Northern Virginia Community College-Annandale, found a very cool way to do this: pop up research desks!


Heather explains:

We popped up research help desks in different buildings around Northern Virginia Community College Annandale’s campus. We were marketing to the student body and faculty, so I wanted to make something that stood out but also looked personable and fun—just like our wonderful library reference staff! I used Adobe Illustrator to create the librarian on the flyer, and built the rest of the design from there.

That’s a pretty adorable Ask a Librarian flyer, and a couple of super helpful and inventive librarians in the picture above.  Great outreach idea, NOVA librarians!

The Adobe Illustrator document is available on the Librarian Design Share Google Drive to freely download and modify.
