Working with graphic design students to promote `Land of Lost Content¿ at Leeds Met.

By Kirsty Carver and C. Parkin

Abstract

yesAs Leeds Metropolitan is a university of festivals\ud and partnerships, the library was given the opportunity\ud this year to host a festival to promote the\ud library and all its services to the university. The\ud library festival was a week of events and activities\ud to promote the library and its space in new ways.\ud It was a good way to remind staff and students of\ud the value of libraries, not only as places to learn\ud but also as places to enhance our leisure and\ud working lives ... we chose to promote the database `Land of Lost\ud Content¿. This was because graphic design and\ud art students are based at our campus and we also\ud thought this database would attract a wide range\ud of students who might otherwise think that electronic\ud databases contain little of interest for them.\ud Our promotion has been so successful in many\ud ways that we would like to share our experience\ud with other librarians
