The Creative Library

The current issue of Urban Library Journal is about the creative endeavors of librarians. The articles in the issue discuss innovated services and programs librarians are implementing in their libraries today. My colleague (Sarah Laleman Ward) and I wrote an article titled “It All Started with a Button” for the “Reports from the Field” section about some of our practical and inexpensive creative marketing and outreach ventures. The article begins with a discussion about how we’ve utilized the “buttons” in our library, and then elaborates on other creative marketing and outreach techniques we’ve used. Take a look.

  1. Thanks for posting the link to your joint article, Jill! After hearing about your button idea in Denver at ARLIS this past Spring, our library has gone through an intensive button-making Summer! The new students arrive for Orientation this week, and we’re excited to start giving them away!!

    I found your blog while searching for info on Decor & designer antiques in Europe. I’m going on an antiquing tour that may be of interest to design students because it is a no frills inexpensive trip to the antiques markets at Arezzo in Italy, Swinderby & Newark in England and the paris flea markets in France.
