Enhancing Your Library's Public Relations with "Lunch-and-Learn" Workshops.
Godbey, Ruth
The staff of the Creighton University (Omaha, Nebraska) Health Sciences Library has been able to improve not only the library's public relations but also the image of the library by presenting weekly "Lunch-and-Learn" workshops. Since 1990, approximately 15 workshops have been presented each semester with topics ranging from cancer genetics and health care reform to surfing the Internet. In addition to library staff members serving as workshop leaders, Creighton University faculty members have also shared their fields of expertise. Attendance at these workshops has gradually increased as topics have been revised, more avenues of publicity have been devised, and the workshops have been kept to a length of under one hour. Evaluation forms and interest questionnaires are distributed at all workshops to gauge the interests of the library clients and to incorporate their suggestions for future workshops. The highly successful "Lunch-and-Learn" workshops are increasing clients' awareness of the library's services and activities, and will therefore be continued. (Author/SWC)
