I have contacted our Library’s communications director, and she is happy to help spread the word, and to help us with a basic communications strategy.
@kjhollen, I mentioned your flyer, and she was encouraging. She offered the use of the UIC logo, although she would like approval of the final flyer. I figure it makes sense for us to include our respective institutions on the flyer, right? Would DePaul and/or SAIC want to include their logos?
At least it seems the UIC Library would like credit for providing resources (e.g. space, coffee), and to provide some official sanction. Seems reasonable to me. Let me know your thoughts.
@jdpirtle, I gave some more thought to a potential audience, and this is what I came up with:
- the public
- schools and universities
- art departments
- humanities departments
- computer science/engineering departments
- underserved populations
- students: primarily undergraduates, but also high-school or graduate students
- faculty and other professionals
