Academic Librarians: Have Laptop will Travel

“We are trying to save everybody a whole lot of time.”

Watch the video there for a look at academic librarians getting out from behind the reference desk and go where the students are.

Interesting outreach program by the Macon State College Library sends librarians with laptops to the cafeteria/student life center at lunchtime to answer reference questions or help students find information they need for their coursework.

I like this idea a lot and agree with David’s question? Why only 90 minutes a week?
