What’s a day like in an academic library? Once again, the USF Poly Library will participate in the Florida Library Snapshot Day on Wednesday, November 2nd. Libraries of all types throughout the state will tell their stories and make their incredible value known through pictures and stories.

On that day, we will take pictures of all the activity taking place in the Poly Library. We’ll have two open door seminars on database searching (one at 12PM and one at 4PM, in LTB 2153). We’ll also have the visit of Echo, the famous (and gentle) therapy dog. You’ll be invited to leave comments and stories on how the library assists you.

Florida Library Snapshot Day is organized by the Florida Library Association. You can read about last year’s results. We hope to see you on November 2nd.

Poly students help certify (library) canine

Posted in At USFL, People by Diane Fulkerson | No Comments »

Poly Business Librarian Lisa Zilinski is the proud owner of Echo, a recently certified therapy dog. Lisa worked with the Psychology Club to help certify Echo. The German-Australian shepherd mix visited some cognitive science classes as well to help students discuss the benefits of animal-assisted therapy, as well as cognition and learning in dogs.

It was a great opportunity for the students to get a great hands-on, applied learning opportunity, which is integral part of a polytechnic education.
