ASU Library Joins Statewide ‘Snapshot Day’
October 22, 2012
Every day, Texas libraries reach out to millions of Texans – students, adults, job-seekers, researchers, entrepreneurs and countless others – by providing information resources for a variety of uses ranging from business to relaxation. On Snapshot Day the Porter Henderson Library will compile statistics, customer comments, photographs and other data chronicling a typical library day. The results collected at the Porter Henderson Library will be added to those of other libraries across Texas to show how libraries provide invaluable services to Texans.
ASU Library Executive Director Maurice Fortin said, “Academic libraries in the 21st century should be places that facilitate collaborative learning while providing high technology and access to information, regardless of format.”
At the Porter Henderson Library, ASU students, staff and faculty use the Learning Commons, group study rooms, research assistance desk and numerous other resources to meet their information needs. With new accountability standards in place, the academic library program is critical to helping students learn to effectively master digital literacy, reading and research skills.
Supporters of the Porter Henderson Library are asked to drop by the Learning Commons in the library and speak with Sarah Schmidt or Kimberly Wirth to share their thoughts about the library and participate in some of the day’s activities. Texas Library Snapshot Day is a project of the Texas Library Association and the Porter Henderson Library.
