Congratulations to the Library Resource Lab Winners!
On September 29, Kelvin Smith Library hosted the Library Resource Lab to showcase many of the science and engineering specialized resources available in the library. In its fourth year, this event has set records with more than175 participants, 11 vendors demonstrating their products and the overall satisfaction of those involved.
Many participants expressed satisfaction with the event, as it allowed them to discover new resources and learn ew tricks about familiar ones. Vendors from Elsevier, IEE
E, Springer, Wiley, ACS, SPIE, ProQuest, Gale, JSTOR, ASM International, and American Ceramic Society were also pleased with the experience, already having committed to returning next year. endors were also impressed with how engaging the students were and the complexity of their questions. Event planners (KSL staff) were happy with the event's educational vibe, the opportunity to interact with so many participants, and the chance to highlight additional library resources and services available on campus.
Courtesy of our generous sponsors, we had two grand prize raffle winners, both BME students: Yuanqi Xie won a mini wireless printer/scanner offered by ProQuest and Lydia Warren won a $50 gift card offered by Springer. Multiple gift cards were also offered as door prizes.
Finally, we’d like to offer a big "thank you" to our sponsors, Elsevier, Wiley, IEEE, ACS and SPIE, and a shout-out to all event participants!
