A Tipping Point for HvZ!

After each Humans v Zombies event, I like to write a Gaz post on the event just to keep a record of the event, but this time I’m writing to talk about what looks like a tipping point in the event. The Spring 2014 HvZ had 120 participants, this year we had 158 (and last... more

What The Heck Does An Outreach Librarian Do?

Last week, as part of my responsibilities as an Instruction and Outreach Librarian at ZSR, I was planning a variety of outreach events for Spring 2015. As I planned these events, I realized that many of these events happen away from ZSR or after hours, and I thought it might be worthwhile to take a... more

Cool New Presentation Tools for Spring 2015

As a fan of better presentation tools, I’m always on the lookout for ways to replace Powerpoint! Here are a few options that go beyond Powerpoint and even past Prezi! First, there is Microsoft Sway.

Now the search committee has been formed to find a new dean for the Library and the search process... more

ZSR Hosts Biggest HvZ Event to Date!

Thanks to some heavy marketing of Humans v Zombies during orientation (an OG&B ad, a mention at Project Wake: Civility, and a mention at Faculty House Calls) along with our huge HvZ event in mid-August for Worldwide Wake and SPARC, there was quite a large group of students eager to participate in Friday night’s Humans... more

Summer 2014 Recap of “Humans V. Zombies” and “Capture the Flag” events at ZSR!

Last summer, the Library began hosting “Humans V. Zombies” and “Capture the Flag” events for the LENS summer program, the new students who attend Summer II, and both the SPARC and International students who come to campus early! This year, we continued those programs, with a June “Capture the Flag” event for the 51 LENS... more
