The project consisted of 11 events in total: (7) Check it Out! events and (4) Library Lectures. Each event was recorded and is available via Memorial Libraries Research Repository.Memorial Libraries was excited to expand upon the public engagement of our Check it Out! initiative to include a lecture series that provided professional development opportunities for the university library staff as well as the province’s complement of library workers that comprise NLLA’s membership. Memorial Libraries is one of the rare examples of a University department that does not have a lecture series that brings in nationally and internationally acclaimed practitioners/scholars from their field. With support from the Accelerator Fund we believe that this new component has brought great benefit to the university and provincial library profession.
