LAUW launches Librarians’ Activities and Accomplishments page
Sure, it looks sparse right now, but we are confident that due to the busy professional lives University of Waterloo librarians lead, this page will grow to become a rich and diverse inventory of the amazing things we do. As the description notes:
“Our hope is to capture what Waterloo librarians are up to professionally and to share this information on our website and possibly with our community in ways that are appropriate and that help to raise the profile of librarians at the University of Waterloo.”
So, have you got news to share? We need your help to populate the page. Use the simple, easy-to-use form provided, to submit your and your colleagues accomplishments.
