Presentation Description

Three librarians from the University of Georgia share the successes and challenges of holding office hours in various academic departments across the University of Georgia campus. Successes include meeting departmental faculty and students; identifying research trends in the departments; and being available in the researcher’s department. Challenges include successfully advertising availability; finding an appropriate area to conduct the office hours; and justifying the time spent away from the library.
