'Welcome to your Library 2010' wins an award

For September 2010 Information Services redesigned the library induction experience for undergraduates. We wanted students' first experiences of the library to be informative but also enjoyable and engaging, so we re-thought every aspect of the induction: location, content, marketing, timetabling, technologies, even seating - hence the famous beanbags! As a result we won the 'Highly Commended' award in the Welsh Marketing Innovation Awards (Higher Education category) for our 'Welcome to your Library 2010' sessions, most of which took place on the 27th-30th September, 10am-5pm each day.
