To make the open house a library-wide effort, all staffing levels
(faculty, staff, students) participated and all departments were represented.

The library exhibited posters created by faculty who participated in the Summer Institute,
a workshop sponsored by the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning to improve teaching.
