Up On the Roof with Poets
Type of Work
As academic libraries struggle with the necessity of marketing the library as both a virtual and real place, it is more important than ever that librarians think creatively about promoting library resources. The E. H. Butler Library of Buffalo (N.Y.) State College (BSC) uses poetry to market the library and its literary resources. Through the "Rooftop Poetry Club" and poetry readings, open-mike events, workshops, and campuswide poetry projects, the library has attracted new patrons and proven itself an invaluable forum for the campus writing community and an asset to the entire college.
