Plunder Some Library Loot

I love this idea: a “mystery night” at the library, after closing. A group of students prowls the library in the dark with flashlights, looking up “clues” in library resources. Now, this is some fantastic outside-the-box kind of BI, as well as a great outreach activity!

Sophie Brookover of Pop Goes the Library has authored a thoughtful NextGen Librarian article on Library Journal. It's a great piece that addresses a big issue that I've heard very little talk of professionally: those in our younger set who perhaps want to cut back on their careers to spend more time with family.

Does this gaming page at the UIUC Library make your mouth water? Me, too.

And, in celebration of Talk Like a Pirate Day:
Erika of the Amplified Library displays her pirate-y skills. Arrr, matey!
