Library Staff from Drexel, Penn and Temple Gather at Annual Event
“Be bold, be bold, be not too bold,” was the theme of the keynote presentation James Shulman, president of ARTstor, gave at the annual gathering on Friday, January 11, 2013. Over 100 members of the library staffs from Drexel University, Temple University and the University of Pennsylvania were present as Shulman spoke about how bold ideas can lead to innovation.
Appropriately, the event was held in Drexel’s Library Learning Terrace, a space that was created as a result of the bold idea to embed the libraries in the heart of the student residential area.
Following Shulman’s keynote, librarians from each of the universities presented updates on projects in their departments. This annual gathering offers a unique opportunity for library staff from these three institutions to network and discuss different projects and initiatives at each of their locations.
