2) Follow-Up from previous meeting
i) It has been difficult to accommodate the absences from previous TMLGAC meetings with up to 5 students missing a meeting. Different meeting times during the day, or giving optional times to meet has been proposed. Emily will be more consistent with updating the Facebook page more with meeting dates and will be more flexible with the meeting times regarding mid-terms and finals for the March and April meetings.
3) Programming - Guest - Shannon D. Jones, Associate Director, Research & Education
a) Types of Programming
i) Many types of programming were suggested to promote goals of lifelong learning. These ranged from online, asynchronous tutorials for CE credit to workshops on financial aid. Many of the programs have to potential for the library to partner with another VCU entities including the Writing Center, CCTR, etc. The library will be investigating many of these mentioned programs to see if many of them could be offered through the library.
b) Marketing of Programming
i) It is essential for the library to know where to advertise our programming. We will continue to advertise on Facebook and through the VCU Calendar. Thank you for sharing contacts you receive emails from in your school. This will help us advertise our programs directly to the schools.
