Lee Library fair July 7 to help patrons discover untapped resources

Discover the more unknown services of the Brigham Young University Harold B. Lee Library at its first services fair Thursday, July 7, at 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Various services throughout the library will have booths on the third level to give students, faculty and staff a greater idea of the library’s resources.

Using the theme “Did You Know?", participating reference desks and services have selected a few under-utilized but useful services that can add to scholars’ use of the library.

Those in attendance will be able to participate in a GPS and custom map-making activity hosted by the science desk, learn how to convert personal VHSs to DVDs from the multimedia lab, debunk who can visit L. Tom Perry Special Collections and discover where the library mummy is located.

The multimedia lab will share video production equipment available for check out as well as inform scholars about photo and video editing classes offered. Religion and family history specialists will demonstrate their newest scanner that allows patrons to digitize and preserve photos, documents and journals.

Other participating groups include the media center, access services, the copyright licensing office, the writing and research lab, art in the library committee, as well as the juvenile collection, music, periodicals and sampler desks.
