Syracuse University Libraries will virtually celebrate National Libraries Week from April 19 – 25, 2020. The American Library Association has designated “Find Your Place at the Library” as this year’s national theme. “As the academic virtual hub of the University, it’s important for the Libraries to celebrate our unique role in the lives of our students, faculty, employees and community members,” said David Seaman, University Librarian and Dean of the Syracuse University Libraries.
The Libraries will resume its “Love your SU Libraries”-themed sticker contest. Originally planned for March, the contest was postponed as the campus adjusted to a remote environment. Now resumed, the Libraries is seeking original design entries from students, faculty and staff. Sticker designs should be no larger than 4” x 4” and submitted as PDF file to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 1. Designs can be full-color and various shapes or sizes. Creativity is encouraged. The Libraries will select one winning design to print and distribute when on-campus classes resume. In addition to online recognition, the winner will receive a prize of Bluetooth-enabled earbuds.
In addition to the sticker contest, the Libraries will feature social media posts highlighting the value of the Libraries throughout the week. The campus community is encouraged to share the impact of the Libraries through use of the hashtag #LoveSULibraries.
