On January 31st, 2008 we held our first meeting of the Spring Semester. We had a good turn out and got to discuss some upcoming activities.
First of all, we are planning a tour of the MassArt Library for Wednesday, Feb 27th at 5:30pm. We will meet at Simmons before that and walk over together. We will send a reminder and details to the Panopticon list.
We are also in the midst of figuring out the logistics of changing the art in the GSLIS tech lab. Our hope is to be able to hang student art instead of the READ posters that are currently on the walls. We are working with facilities to figure out the best hanging options and will keep you posted once we are at the point where we can consider collecting some student art and getting it up on the walls. So start thinking about some hang-able art that you’ve made! Again, we’ll send out details to the listserv.
Our big plan for sometime at the end of the semester is to put together a skill share related to Art Librarianship and Visual Resources. We will be sending out a survey soon to help us understand what topics folks would like to see covered at the Skill Share.
We want to establish Panopticon as an official student group and we’re looking into what we need to do to make that happen. We are also on the lookout for some people to step up and take the reigns for next semester since both of the current co-chairs, Ashley and Beth, will be graduating in May.
We have a lot up our sleeves and we’re looking forward to a busy, fun and productive semester. Keep your eyes peeled for posts to the list, and as always, feel free to contact us with any questions, comments or ideas.
