End of the Year Report: 2015-2016 School Year: Goals

Last Year's Goals

  • Continue email and in-person communication with faculty members
  • Roll out planned marketing for ebooks using shelf markers (idea from Pinterest)
  • Host at least two programs for students
  • Teach at least one PD for teachers
  • Plan Dewey of the Week to spotlight non-fiction materials that are now shelved in the back room.

Goals Met?

I think that for the most part, I was able to meet the majority of my goals for this year.  I reached out to faculty members in person and via email, I hosted programs for students and had NYPL come and speak about the MyLibraryNYC program for our teachers.  I did not get to create my shelf markers for ebooks, but I think that might be something that I can do for the new library.   Finally, I had begun the Dewey of the Week spotlighting (and had already planned out the themes for the entire Fall Semester), but then, thanks to some grant funding from last year that we were spending this year, we had a constant stream of new books to highlight.  Because I had limited space to feature books, I wanted to get the new books out, so I highlighted them instead of the Dewey of the Week.  There is more display space in the new library, so I think I will still be able to highlight topics in addition to new books.

Goals for the 2016-2017 School Year

  • Market Ebooks
  • Acclimate to the new space, including setting up and organizing the room to make it feel comfortable and easy to navigate for our students and faculty
  • Create and integrate library usage policies
  • Reintroduce lunchtime crafts and chess
  • Use Instagram and my laminated door sign to talk about what I am reading and promote reading with students and faculty, and encourage faculty to do the same.
