Spring 2006 Arizona University Libraries Consortium Meeting, Tempe, Arizona
On Friday, February 17th, the ASU Libraries hosted the twice-yearly ARIZONA UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES CONSORTIUM meeting. This year’s highlight was also the way the attendees started their day: the Student Panel: “Academic Libraries in Transition: Here’s What Students Have to Say”. Five students from various academic levels and backgrounds came together and were engaged as a panel by moderator JoAnn Mulvihill. Panelists were asked questions covering topics such as what types of technologies they preferred to use, what time and where they preferred to write papers, how they learned about how to use the library or new library technologies, and what improvements they’d like to see the libraries undertake.
The panelists were charming, engaging, and offered an amazing amount of insight into how the student community is using the library system and the tools we provide.
Student Participants: Elizabether Miller, Michael Perez, Lynn Mantion, Jenna Lathrop, Brian Collier
